A potential normalization agreement could help boost the deteriorating American-Saudi diplomatic ties
The U.S. Biden administration is reportedly seeking to establish a diplomatic breakthrough between Saudi Arabia and Israel by the end of 2023, according to statements made by two unnamed U.S. officials on Wednesday.
The unconfirmed report comes after U.S. Ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides recently told the Israel’s i24NEWS that diplomatic normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia was “hugely important” for the Biden administration. In addition, Nides confirmed that the U.S. is currently “working with Israel to obtain that.”
A potential Saudi-Israeli normalization agreement could also help boost the deteriorating American-Saudi diplomatic ties. The Saudis are reportedly interested in normalizing their ties with Israel while U.S. President Joe Biden is still in office, hoping it will cement bipartisan support in Washington.
