US President Joe Biden said after Friday’s meeting (10) with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (known as MBS) who questioned him about the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, killed in 960 inside the consulate of the Arab country in Istanbul, Turkey.

“I said, very bluntly, that an American president being silent on a human rights issue is inconsistent about who we are and who I am. I will always defend our values,” Biden said after the meeting.

A CIA report accused MBS of having approved the operation that resulted in Khashoggi’s death. Biden said on Friday that the crown prince told him he was “not personally responsible” for the death. “I indicated that I thought he was”, pointed out the American president after the meeting, the first between them and held in Jeddah, part of Biden’s trip to the Middle East.

Criticized for having contradicted his campaign speech that he would deal with the Saudi kingdom as a “pariah”, the American president had previously said that his objective in the trip is to prevent the increase of Chinese and Russian influence in the region.

According to the Washington Post, the American exit required Israel’s consent, due to a diplomatic arrangement. Another novelty involving the Jewish state was an announcement by the Saudis that they will lift restrictions on Israeli commercial flights over their territory. Another point raised in the conversation with MBS was the extension of the ceasefire in Yemen.
