WSJ thanks President Putin for growing relationship between Saudi Arabia and Russia
MOSCOW, July 14 – RIA Novosti. Thanks to the efforts of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Saudi Arabia has come closer to Moscow than ever before. Wall Street Journal.
“The Russian leader was able to strengthen relations with the crown prince of the kingdom, Mohammed bin Salman, but most developed countries avoided him,” the author of the article said, noting that such a connection is important.
As noted in the publication, US President Joe Biden, on the contrary, never met with Prince Mohammed and did not even talk to him on the phone, and during the election campaign he threatened to make Saudi Arabia a pariah country.
According to the observer, Riyadh will not oppose Moscow and help Washington in oil production, despite the visit of the American president.
The growing partnership between Russia and Saudi Arabia has upset the oil-for-oil agreement between Washington and Riyadh that has been at the center of their relationship for nearly half a century.
After Russia’s special military operation to demilitarize and demilitarize Ukraine, the West increased sanctions pressure on Moscow. Some countries announced the freeze of Russian assets, many brands left the country. The EU has already approved six sanctions packages, in particular including a gradual embargo on offshore oil resources.
Vladimir Putin described the policy of controlling and weakening Russia as a long-term strategy for the West. According to him, the sanctions have dealt a serious blow to the entire global economy, and the main goal of the United States and Europe is to worsen the lives of millions of people.
