Saudi Crown Prince, US National Security Adviser Discuss Bilateral Deal

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan met today Sunday in the Saudi city of Dhahran to discuss Gaza War and complete their bilateral agreement, reported Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

The meeting reviewed the latest developments of Israel’s War on Gaza, confirming the dire need to an immediate ceasefire to stop the ongoing genocide.

Both parties emphasized the importance of facilitating the delivery of humanitarian aid to alleviate the devastating impacts of the war on the civilians.

They examined their efforts to create a “credible track for bringing about the two-state solution” with all due respect to the aspirations and legitimate rights of the Palestinians.

The Future of the Bilateral Deal

Mohammed bin Salman and Sullivan discussed the strategic deal between Washington and Riyadh, in which they reviewed “the semi-final version of the draft” of a wide-ranging security strategic agreement between both of them.

The announcement of this meeting came after the strategic deal had been halted as a result of Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel that killed 1,200 people and saw 250 others taken hostage back to Gaza.

As a response, Israeli launched a retaliatory airstrike campaign and ground offensive on the Strip, killing over 35,000 Palestinians, destroying around 80,000 homes, and endangering the security deal that had included Saudi Arabia diplomatically recognizing Israel for the first time since its founding in 1948.

However, after the soaring tensions in Gaza, the Kingdom decisively declared that without addressing the Palestinian-Israeli conflict in a manner that satisfies the Palestinians, there would be no normalization.

Princess Reema bint Bandar Al-Saud, the Saudi Ambassador to Washington, told the World Economic Forum in January that normalization would be impossible without an “irrevocable” pathway towards the state’s creation.
