The U.S. might assist Saudi Arabia in enriching uranium with Israel's approval as part of an agreement to create peace and normalize relations between the Jewish state and Saudi Arabia.
According to a Wall Street Journal report on Wednesday, “Israeli officials are quietly working with the Biden administration on a polarizing proposal to set up a U.S.-run uranium-enrichment operation in Saudi Arabia as part of a complex three-way deal.”
Mohammed bin Salman, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, said to Bret Baier on Fox News on Wednesday that the Saudis would only pursue nuclear weapons if Iran did it first. But as President Joseph Biden struggles to find a diplomatic solution and the Iranian regime inches closer to a nuclear “breakout,” the situation is growing increasingly critical.
The normalization of relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran under Chinese sponsorship may have caused the United States to shift from its critical position toward Saudi Arabia to one of seeking common ground.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Biden met on Wednesday outside the United Nations General Assembly. Biden had avoided Netanyahu ever since Netanyahu won Israel's elections last year. A Palestinian state or even the judicial reform that Biden had objected to were not mentioned in the summary from the post-meeting by Biden.
Biden and Netanyahu instead underlined the possibility of achieving peace with Saudi Arabia. In addition, the Crown Prince abandoned a previous Saudi demand for a Palestinian state in favor of merely calling for a “decent existence” for Palestinians.
A U.S.-run enrichment facility in Saudi Arabia would adhere to non-proliferation regulations, according to American officials quoted in the Journal.
In exchange for peace, Israel seems willing to risk a nuclear Saudi Arabia.
