There is no doubt that US President Donald Trump’s decision to go to Saudi Arabia on his first foreign trip as president adds another dimension to the path of relations between the US and the Saudi kingdom and confirms the special historical relations between the two countries and their people.
It also proves that the strong ties reflect the depth of bilateral relations in the political, military, economic and security fields and indicate an obvious quantum leap.
The visit is marked by three summits - the Saudi-American summit, the Gulf-American summit and the American-Islamic summit.
These meetings will discuss the situation in the region and the destruction it is suffering due to some regional countries’ flagrant interferences and threats to safety and stability.
The three summits indicate a new reality in international relations. This reality helps enhance the level of understanding and embodies the world’s respect for the kingdom and for its leadership and experience in the new era which is characterized with a drive that is based on taking initiatives that maintain Arab and Islamic interests. This drive also represents a new phase that rejects the policy of truces and appeasement.
It is distinguished for the decisive determination of King Salman bin Abdulaziz, may Allah bless him, to protect the security and stability of Arab countries from threats and to strengthen Arab and international solidarity against rogue states that violate international law. This drive also reflects a quantum leap on all levels and embodies a safe approach and the clarity of vision and aims as it looks forward towards a promising future within the national transformation plan and Vision 2030 which have put the kingdom on the path of a new phase to confront economic challenges.

Terrorism is a global phenomenon. Therefore, the entire international community is responsible for combating it as it represents a violent phenomenon that societies have suffered for a long time now. Terrorism is not limited to a religion or a nationality or an ethnicity or race, and it will continue to further become complicated as international communities develop, particularly following the technological and digital revolution and the emergence of social media.Abdulrahman Gdaia
