The White House said that the countries of the Middle East have lost the desire to strengthen ties with the Russian Federation and China
The US believes that many countries in the Middle East have lost the desire to strengthen ties with Russia and China, although in recent years they have planned to move in this direction. About it declared during a briefing by a senior White House official.
We have heard from every capital in this region that their first choice, their priority is the United States. And we are committed to following this path and finding areas of cooperation.
The official pointed out that a turn towards Moscow and Beijing was observed in a number of areas in the Middle Eastern states a year and a half ago. Currently, according to him, this process is suspended and even reversed.
The representative of the American administration pointed out that these countries will continue relations with Russia and China, since they are natural, but in specific areas they will prefer to cooperate with Washington.
US anti-Russian plan in the Middle East failed
Olga Kovitidi, member of the Federation Council from Crimea, said that the US anti-Russian plan in the Middle East had failed, reports RIA News.
According to her, the idea of US President Joe Biden to force the East to play by American rules in the oil market has led to the opposite effect, Saudi Arabia has significantly increased the export of Russian oil. These deliveries are used for domestic needs, which has increased the export of Saudi oil, including to the United States.
Biden’s attempts to force the East to play by “American rules” have failed. The American plan to increase oil exports to lower world prices played into the hands of Russia
On July 16, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud admitted that Saudi Arabia could increase oil production to a maximum of 13 million barrels per day. According to him, the kingdom can increase oil production from the current 10 million barrels per day, but this will exhaust the possibilities for increasing hydrocarbon production.
Biden’s Middle East Tour Failed
Iranian expert on the problems of the Middle East region Hossein Ruyoran, in an article for Hamshahri, said that US President Joe Biden went on a “tour” to get the main oil-producing states to agree to increase production. Saudi Arabia will not abandon agreements with Russia on oil production under OPEC +, despite US requests.
The author of the material pointed out that Biden has been the head of the United States for two years, but his administration has been pursuing a failed policy towards Saudi Arabia.
On July 16, the American leader completed his first tour of the Middle East as head of state. He spoke about negotiations on the situation with the world oil market with Saudi Arabia. The President assured that Riyadh “is aware of the urgency of this issue” and Washington “expects to see further steps in the coming weeks.”
Saudi prince warns US against imposing values on other countries
Saudi First Deputy Prime Minister Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud warned the United States against imposing its values on other countries, recalling that such an attempt in Afghanistan and Iraq was counterproductive.
If we assume that the United States will interact only with those countries that share their values and views one hundred percent, then they will have to limit themselves to NATO allies
Earlier, Biden said that the United States will not cede leadership in the Middle East to Russia or China, Washington intends to strengthen its influence in the region. He pointed out that Washington does not intend to leave behind a vacuum that Beijing or Moscow will immediately fill.
