    A senior Saudi adviser later confirmed the Netanyahu MBS meeting but said no agreement had been reached, the Wall Street Journal reported

    According to the report, Saudi advisors said that MBS, which is determined to forge links with the Biden government, is currently unwilling to reach a normalization agreement with Israel, preferring instead to sign a possible peace deal rather than signifying relations with Saudi -Arabia to be elected president in the future

    The advisors added that establishing relations with Israel under Biden, who has taken a tough stance on Saudi Arabia’s human rights record, could help the Saudis in Washington, an official U.S. Source told Wall Street Journal that « Saudi Arabia is trying to figure out how best to use this to repair its image in Washington and generate goodwill with Biden and Congress »
