Prince of Saudi Arabia launches against Biden: “I just don’t care”

Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.


Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman marked his distance from President Joe Bidento consider that he has “misunderstood” things about him, for which he claimed not to care, in addition to not accepting “lessons” from the United States.

Bin Salman’s position comes after Saudi Arabia will vote in favor of the Biden Administration’s proposal to the United Nations to condemn Russia for the invasion of Ukraine.

It should be remembered that President Biden has refused to meet with the crown prince – who was very close to the Government of donald trump–, after the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post, and the investigation that determined that he was executed by the Saudi regime.

In the interview with The Atlantic, Bin Salman considered that Biden should focus on the interests of the United States.

“I just don’t care,” he said when asked if President Biden misread things about him.

We have no right to teach the United States lessons… The same thing happens the other way around,” he remarked.

According to Bin Salman, his own rights had been violated with the Biden Administration’s report on Khashoggi’s murder.

“I feel that the human rights law was not applied to me… Article XI of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights establishes that everyone is innocent until proven guilty,” he defended.

After the report of Khashoggi’s assassination, the plan to attract investment to his kingdom practically collapsed, in an attempt to diversify the economy, based mainly on oil.

Despite the estrangement with President Biden, the Saudi kingdom maintains constant communication with the Secretary of State, Antony Blinkenwho spoke with spoke with Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud about condemning Vladimir Putin’s regime at the UN.

“[Se habló] on Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified attack on Ukraine, the importance of respecting the principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity of the United Nations Charter, and coordinating a strong international response in support of Ukrainian sovereignty,” the State Department reported.
