Saudi FM Optimistic Ties with U.S. Will be ‘Excellent’ under Biden


Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan voiced optimism Thursday that relations between Riyadh and Washington will be “excellent” under new U.S. President Joe Biden.

The appointments made by Biden for his new administration “showed (an) understanding of the common issues,” Prince Faisal told Al-Arabiya television, without elaborating.

Prince Faisal’s comments comes despite Biden’s pledge during his election campaign to treat the kingdom as a “pariah” over its human rights failings and to end U.S. support to a Saudi-led military campaign in war-ravaged Yemen.
