Graham Statement On Meeting With Saudi Crown Prince

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement following a meeting with Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

“I just had a very productive, candid meeting with the Saudi Crown Prince and his senior leadership team. The opportunity to enhance the U.S.-Saudi relationship is real and the reforms going on in Saudi Arabia are equally real.

“I look forward to working with the administration and congressional Republicans and Democrats to see if we can take the U.S.-Saudi relationship to the next level, which would be a tremendous economic benefit to both countries and bring much-needed stability to a troubled region.

“I also expressed deep appreciation to the Kingdom for purchasing $37 billion worth of Boeing 787s which are made in South Carolina for the new Saudi airline. Investments like this are game changers.”
