Exciting statements about a “new era” with Trump’s visit … and messages to Iran
Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia is his first foreign official visit since he took office in January.
After years of apathy in the shadow of the Barack Obama administration against the backdrop of the nuclear deal with Tehran, Gulf states have found in Trump an ally with whom they are rebuilding their historical relationship with Washington.
Saudi Arabia accuses its neighbor, Iran, of interfering in the affairs of the countries of the region. Riyadh finds the Trump administration listening to its concerns about “Iranian interference”, especially with the intensification of the officials of this administration, accusing Tehran of destabilizing the region and waving them to take measures against the Islamic Republic.
But Tehran denies the Saudi accusations, and in return accuses Riyadh of supporting Islamic extremist groups.
Riyadh, in neighboring Yemen, since March 2015, has been leading an Arab military alliance against Houthi rebels, whom it accuses of receiving support from Tehran.
