Saudi-US relations 'strongest ever'

Saudi-US relations 'strongest ever'

"You should have increased it", he told Mohammed.

Trump held up a printed pictorial chart describing different defence deals. Additional deals might still come to fruition.

The crown prince, in a rare foray into speaking English, said the Saudi pledge for $200 billion in investments will end up at $400 billion when fully implemented.

"We talked about the importance of our relationship, no doubt", Sen. "But we strongly, strongly pushed back on what is happening right now in Yemen and asked them to take strong corrective actions". Neither Mr. Trump nor his guest mentioned Yemen or the humanitarian crisis there to reporters, instead focusing on the huge increase in military hardware that Saudi Arabia is purchasing from the US, and the boon to the USA economy. The deadlock over an agreement has been an obstacle to the ability of firms using USA material or technology to bid on construction contracts for a pair of electricity-producing reactors the Saudis want to build.

Meanwhile Washington Post "Today's World View" column written by Ishan Tharoor, say that at the time of the meeting between the two leaders "a storm was brewing on Capitol Hill".

General Mills' sales rise 2.3 percent

SAUDI Arabia's crown prince received an effusive welcome yesterday at the White House from United States President Donald Trump, who hailed a "great friendship" with the kingdom but made no public mention of the sticking points in the burgeoning alliance. Few details have emerged since about the peace plan, brokered by Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, but Saudi political support and financing are seen as critical elements.

Crown Prince Mohammed spearheaded the invasion of Yemen shortly after being named minister of Defense in 2015.

When they met in the Oval Office, and later in the Cabinet Room, Trump was effusive in his praise for Mohammed.

"And, as you know, Mr. President, from day one you've reached this office, we've planned to tackle $200bn for opportunities in the next four years, but it end up with $400bn for opportunities", MBS said.
Trump opened a session with reporters by asking the prince where he saw oil prices going and how much petroleum the kingdom still had.

Longtime U.S. allies like the United Kingdom and South Korea have seen relations fray since President Donald Trump took office, but at least one nation sees its partnership growing tighter than ever: Saudi Arabia. And we'll be able to get out of certain areas that we've wanted to get out of for a long period of time. Saudi officials recently calling it a "flawed agreement", and Trump has repeatedly stated the deal should be reworked or scrapped all together. King Salman is slated to visit the United States later this year. Also like Saudi Arabia, Israel shares a common foe with the U.S.in Iran. Tremendous investments made in our country.
