On Sunday, the activities of the joint “Dragon” exercise between the Royal Saudi Air Force and the US Air Force began in the Western Region.
The joint exercise is aimed at training in tactical interception, combat training and air counterattack, and suppressing enemy air defenses.
The exercise also contributes to achieving compatibility and operational integration, and is considered a continuation of the joint cooperation between the Saudi and American air forces to maintain security and stability in the region.
And recently, the United States of America renewed its commitment and strategic partnership with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
John Kirby, a spokesman for the US Department of Defense, said that Saudi Arabia is a key partner to the United States in several areas.
A spokesman for the US Department of Defense confirmed that Saudi Arabia has the right to defend its security, and condemned the attacks of the Houthi militia in Yemen against Saudi Arabia.
This is the first military exercise between the two countries, after the publication of a US intelligence report, on Friday, on the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, which carried a set of abusive and incorrect conclusions and assumptions about responsibility for that incident that took place in 2018.
