The President of the United States will begin a trip to the Middle East in the coming days, where he will visit Israel and Saudi Arabia
U.S. President Joe Biden will take with him a message of “peace and hope” on his trip to Saudi Arabia; from Israel, said Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid.
“Israel appeals to all the countries of the region and calls on them to connect with us, establish relationships with us, change history for the sake of our children,”— quoted by Ynet news portal.
According to Lapid, after a visit to the country, Biden will fly from Israel to Saudi Arabia on a direct flight. The Israeli prime minister said that in his talks with the American leader, he plans first of all to touch upon the topic of Iran, since, according to Lapid, Iran is engaged in uranium enrichment.
“Israel, for its part, reserves complete freedom of action, political and operational, in the fight against the Iranian nuclear program,” he said.
Biden's trip to the Middle East will begin on July 13 and will last until July 16. The US President will visit Israel, the West Bank and Saudi Arabia. According to Reuters, he will meet with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud.
On the eve of his trip, Biden published an op-ed in The Washington Post about his visit to Saudi Arabia. The upcoming trip caused criticism, however, writes the American leader, the United States must “resist Russian aggression”, and for this it is necessary to interact with countries that are capable of influencing global processes. Saudi Arabia, he says, is one such country.
