Blinken In Saudi To Rebuild Strained Ties With US

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is in Saudi Arabia on a 3-day trip to strengthen strained ties between the two countries as the oil-rich kingdom forges closer relations with Washington’s rivals.

His visit will focus on efforts to end conflicts in Sudan and Yemen, the joint battle against the Islamic State group (IS) as well as the Arab world’s relations with Israel.
