“It’s been about 80 years since the founder of my country, King Abdul Aziz, met with President Franklin D. Roosevelt to lay the foundations for the post-war Middle East,” said Princess Remabinto Bandar. It is described in the opinion article published by Politico. On thursday.

“As my country develops, so does the partnership between the United States and Saudi Arabia, and that is why President Joe Biden’s next visit to Saudi Arabia is so important. We must redefine the outline of the next 80 years of this important alliance in order for relationships to bring peace and prosperity to both our people and the wider world.

“The days when US-Saudi relations could be defined by the outdated and reductionist” oil for security “paradigm are gone. The world is changing, and the existential dangers we all face, including food and energy security and climate change, cannot be resolved without an effective Saudi alliance. “

Princess Reamer said the Kingdom is no longer just a world leader in energy, but a world leader in sustainable development.

“Through education, technology, economic diversification and hundreds of billions of dollars in investment in green energy, we have launched a transformational agenda that unleashes the great potential of young men and women.”

She states that Saudi women enjoy equal pay for equal work and indiscriminate legal guarantees at work: “Some Western countries have not taken such steps.

“Today, women in Saudi Arabia outnumber men in our higher education institutions, and women make up the proportion of Saudi entrepreneurs as in the United States.”

She entered the fields of construction, mining, the military, etc., founded a company, became CEO, and became the head of a government “authorized by the government that we decided to succeed”. Said that.

“We must provide people in the region with greater hope for the future, so our rethinked partnerships include collaboration from emerging technologies to joint space exploration. Given Saudi Arabia’s position as the birthplace of Islam, there will be a response from Nigeria to Afghanistan. “

“These are commitments that were once considered unimaginable for the world’s central oil banks.”

Princess Reamer said that “there was some confusing water in the relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia” in connection with the murder of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Royal Consulate in Istanbul. “Emerged stronger from this horrific tragedy. More stringent safeguards to prevent such atrocities from happening again.”

This case does not define future relationships, “what happened is not what we are doing.”

She concluded, “We are certain that a major crisis will face us, and some of them are confident that we have no way of predicting it.” But our two great nations must confidently confront the unknown. And we need to tackle today’s biggest challenges, from deadly epidemics and food insecurity to a responsible transition to renewables. This is the same enthusiasm that once contained the Communist attacks and the threat to global energy production.

“By working together, we can build a future that we all dream of, a future that our young people can be proud of, and a future that deserves us all.”
