Joe Biden says greeting bin Salman is not an important issue

President Joe Biden said Sunday that his controversial greeting with Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, whom the United States accuses of the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, is not an important issue. This was expressed upon his arrival at the White House after his tour of the Middle East, when the press asked him if he regretted having clashed his fist with Bin Salman at the beginning of a meeting in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia).” Why don’t they ask me something that matters? I will answer questions that matter,” the Democratic leader said. The image of the trip was the clash of fists between Biden and Bin Salman after, during the campaign for the 2020 elections, the Democrat promised that he would treat Saudi Arabia as a “pariah” on the international stage and make its leaders pay for Khashoggi’s death. Especially for oil, Biden mentioned khashoggi’s murder during his face-to-face with bin Salman and tried to make it clear that the United States will always advocate for human rights, even if sometimes it has to defend other of its interests as well. We recommend reading: “Keeping silent about human rights for an American president is something that is inconsistent with who we are and who I am. I always defend our values,” Biden shielded himself on Friday from criticism after meeting with bin Salman. Judge calls Nasson Joaquin a predator when issuing his sentence
