The Biden administration has pledged to review US relations with Saudi Arabia

Arab newspapers have discussed Saudi-American relations after the release of a US intelligence report that concluded the involvement of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Saudi newspapers stressed that the relationship between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States of America is “strategic.” A book criticized the report, warning of the “politicization” of the Khashoggi case and the “demonization of the kingdom.”

While a book said that the timing of the report aims to start a “new phase of blackmail and concessions” by the Biden administration towards Saudi Arabia, in order to “reset relations” between the two countries.

‘Blackmail … to reset the relationship’

London’s Arabs say that the Khashoggi report “creates a crisis of confidence between Saudi Arabia and the Biden administration.” It believes that “the American escalation with Saudi Arabia remains limited to avoid a boycott.”
