Saudi Prince To Stress Shared Goals Involving Iran In White House Visit

Ambitious Saudi Crown Prince Mounts Epic US Charm Offensive

By the end of Obama's presidency, the US had pulled back most of its support to the Yemen campaign and even stopped some weapon sales due to claims of mounting civilian casualties. The 32-year-old prince recently expanded women's rights. In a few months, women will drive in Saudi Arabia.

He's been credited with making many changes in the kingdom over the a year ago as part of his ambitious Vision 2030, from allowing driving licences for women to opening up cinemas in the kingdom.

He also cracked down on the religious police.

While that's true - it pumped 9.98 million barrels a day in January, remaining below a cap of 10.058 million - traders don't just care about what gets pumped from oil fields.

"The amount exceeds $100 billion, but the real objective was not this amount or any other amount".

Nawazuddin has no direct role in CDR case
Rizwan Siddiquee's advocate, Rizwan Merchant, said that his client was illegally detained by the police. Nawazuddin Siddiqui recently got caught up in another controversy for allegedly snooping on his wife.

The senior official spoke to reporters in Washington ahead of the crown prince's arrival to the White House on Tuesday.

The ruling prince spoke about his nation's relationship with Iran during an interview on CBS's "60 Minutes" that airs on Sunday.

Saudi Arabia's crown prince wants to restructure the Saudi economy and wean it off its decades-long dependence on oil wealth.

The busy itinerary appears to be a charm offensive to reset American public opinion and woo US investors.

On his trip, officials said Muhammad is seeking to convince US and Western investors and businesses that far-reaching reforms, such as allowing women for the first time to drive, have made his country a more tolerant society and better place to do business. If Saudi Arabia dropped its demands to engage in enrichment, it could become beholden to foreign providers of nuclear fuel, which could present a strategic liability if relations ultimately sour with supplying countries. He arrives Monday for a two-week stay that will include the pursuit of $35 billion in proposed U.S. -Saudi commercial deals. "He's partly here to reassure businessmen that all is well, and 'Don't be afraid, we're not going to seize your assets.' He's trying to re-brand Saudi Arabia in the wake of these arrests and shakedowns".

"It's not an easy country to like", Wisner says. The United States should not be arming and abetting this regime and investors dazzled by the prince's charm offensive and gobs of money should take a second look.

Aside from his remarks on the anti-corruption crackdown, the most interesting part of MBS' interview came when he described Saudis as "victims" of the 1979 Islamist revolution in Iran and the extremist occupation of the Grand Mosque in Mecca. Dissident clerics and critics of the latest reforms have been jailed. Yet that is precisely what the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is attempting to do.

Khalid al-Falih, the Saudi Arabia's energy minister, has said his country is leading fellow OPEC members "by example", routinely cutting crude production by more than it needs to under the 2016 agreement.

"I think there has been a significant and seismic shift in USA policy towards Saudi Arabia under Donald Trump", Hashemi said, explaining that the president and his foreign policy advisers are viewing the world and the Middle East "through a Saudi lens".

Worst of all for some Americans, the September 11 attacks still cast a long shadow over Saudi Arabia because 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi nationals. But while the Saudis pledged in 2017 to reduce civilian deaths, Human Rights Watch said six attacks since then killed 55 civilians. "Either they were behind it, for which there is no evidence, or they created the conditions".
