Expectations for Biden’s return from Saudi Arabia "very confused" Instead of additional oil supplies

Stewart, a broadcaster and media spokesman for Fox News, said US President Joe Biden’s upcoming visit to Saudi Arabia would be a “great embarrassment” for him.

The TV journalist noted that French President Emmanuel Macron earlier on the sidelines of the G7 summit told Biden that the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia are unlikely to be able to increase oil production.

According to him, during the visit, the US president will “request” more oil from Riyadh, but this is impossible. At the same time, if Saudi Arabia agrees, it will have to get the approval of OPEC +, which, as Varney noted, includes Russia.

The journalist expressed confidence that “the president will not be able to get much oil after this trip, but the case will turn out to be a big embarrassment for him, because he is begging the Saudis to increase production.”

Varney saw that the current problems in the United States stemmed from “Biden’s first day in office” when he undermined “America’s energy independence,” adding in that context, “That was the first mistake, and from that moment everything spread.”

Notably, Biden will visit Israel, the West Bank and Saudi Arabia from July 13 to 16 as part of his first tour of the Middle East during his presidency.

Sullivan, Biden’s national security aide, told a White House press briefing that the US president will travel to the Middle East to discuss the region’s energy security assistance in light of Russia’s sting operation in Ukraine.
