Kingdom prioritizes shift to knowledge-based economy
US-Saudi relations in 21st Century by Mr. Muhammad Zamiluddin Khan[’92,SM,HSPH,Harvard University}, Editor In Chief:www.bcgdtrustandlab.com
United Sates is pursuing a policy of building 21st Century in the USA and around the world. Many things that others have expected from the US might not be that forthcoming and Saudi Arabia is steering the regional and energy issues with rapidly changing world. In 1944 President Roosevelt said to King Abdul Aziz that the US would not harm the Arab interest in the region and Under King Abdul Aziz Kingdom of Saudi Arabia joined the UN as first signatory and has pursued a publicity shy foreign policy and quiet diplomacy. In recent days speculations are rife in many quarters that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is distancing itself from the joint initiatives in the region and in other parts of the world with the USA. Foreign Minster Prince Saud Al Faisal said at a recent press conference with Secretary Kerry that there are few difference of objectives with the USA but they are few. And Secretary Kerry reaffirmed the close relationship with the Kingdom on a host of regional and international issues.
Very few venture out their opinion in the US Academia and Policy think tanks about US relations with Saudi Arabia. What we expect from Obama Administration is its sincere attempts to have workable framework to work with difference of objectives so that such difference can not derail historical and strategic relations with Kingdom and also does not impact negatively the US Economy and the Global Economy and prosperity. I will add this much that the Saudi Foreign Minister is the longest serving one and it was proved by the votes that the Kingdom receive for the UN Security Council Membership and Riyadh demands for UN reforms should be taken seriously as it came from the First signatory of the UN Charter. When Prince Bandar Bin Sultan was the Saudi Envoy to Washington DC he enjoyed close contact with President Bush and I believe The Baker Doctrine on Arab Peninsula should have its due significance in US foreign policy.
