Biden to 'reassess' close US-Saudi ties under TrumpBiden, according to NBC News, has described the oil-rich Persian Gulf state as a “pariah” and has confirmed that he believe dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered on direct orders of the regime’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The mainstream US broadcaster further reported that Biden has also vowed during his presidential campaign to end Washington’s support for the Saudi’s war of aggression on neighboring Yemen, which has so far killed more than 112,000 people and spawned the world’s worst humanitarian crisis that has left millions of civilians suffering from food and medical shortages.

It also cited experts as asserting that Biden has suggested that he would halt the sale of American weapons to Riyadh, further vowing to defend the rights of political dissidents across the globe.

The network, however, reiterated that all of the analysts it interviewed for the report emphasized that the strategic significance of the US-Saudi ties would endure and that Biden's presidency would by no means mark the end of those ties.
