JEDDAH — Twenty four hours after the announcement of the victory of Joe Biden and his deputy Kamala Harris in the US presidential elections on Saturday evening, the Saudi leadership reaffirmed its resolve to continue joint cooperation between the two friendly countries.

In cables of congratulations sent to the US president-elect and his deputy, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman hailed the distinguished historic relations between the two friendly countries and peoples that everyone seeks to strengthen and develop in all fields. The bilateral relations between Riyadh and Washington dating back to 1931 are built on mutual respect and cooperation as well as on common interests and have a special place for both sides.

The first ties, which were based on investment in energy and security alliance, were established decades ago while the current relations are focusing on furthering the development and working on a more robust and diversified partnership by investing in the technical, technological, and military sectors.

The common goal is to achieve a bright future and a secure society in both countries and all activities revolve around this. Observers who spoke to Okaz/Saudi Gazette on Monday confirmed that the relationship between the two countries is rooted in historical depth and a strong strategic alliance, regardless of the internal rotation of power in the United States.

The Saudi-US Strategic Dialogue, held on Oct. 14, represented the close partnership between the two countries and their determination to move forward in the framework of a permanent strategic partnership that supports bilateral relations in various fields.
