SAUDI ARABIA – Saudi Arabian government has reacted to the emergence of Joe Biden as the 46th President of United States of America after defeating the incumbent president, Donald Trump in US 2020 Presidential Election.
The king and his son, Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) said they look forward to fostering ties with the U.S.
“King Salman praised the distinguished, historic and close relations between the two friendly countries and their people which everyone looks to strengthen and develop at all levels”, SPA quoted.
During his campaign, Biden promised to reassess relationship with the kingdom and demand more accountability over the death of Jamal Khashoggi.
