President of the United States, Joe Biden, declared that he will hold Saudi Arabia accountable for human rights abuses.
President’s comments come after the US intelligence reported that Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman’s involvement in the murder of American Journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
In an interview with Univision, Mr. President said that he made it clear to the king, “the rules are changing and we are going to be announcing significant changes on Today and Monday,”
“If they want to deal with us, they will have to deal with it in a way that human rights abuses are dealt with,” Biden added.
Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman is the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia. Biden asserted that Salman’s involvement in the murder of the Journalist is outrageous and should not have happened.
Biden administration released a report on Friday that concluded Crown Prince’s involvement in an operation that killed Jamal Khashoggi but took no action against the monarch himself.
Saudi Arabia is the imperial ally for the United States in the Middle East. And it is thought bold of the US president to speak against the Arabian Monarch publicly.
The US on the other hand his battling to extradite Julian Assange to convict him for exposing the dark secrets of the US government. Julian Assange is currently fighting life and death in Belmarsh prison which is also known as the UK’s Guantanamo for its cruel treatment of the prisoners.
