Since that day, the two countries have worked together to defeat Soviet Communism, guarantee global energy security, contain revolutionary Iran, repel Saddam Hussein from Kuwait, and more recently, destroy Alcaida and Dash.” She wrote: Princess Reamer added that the United Kingdom and the United States need to do more as partners “in these very dangerous times.”
As my country develops, so does the partnership between the United States and Saudi Arabia. That is why President Joe Biden’s visit to Saudi Arabia is so important. In order for our relationship to bring peace and prosperity to our people and the world as a whole, we must redefine the outline of the next 80 years of this important alliance.
The days when US-Saudi relations were defined by the outdated and reductionist “oil for security” paradigm are gone. “The world is changing, and the real threats we all face, such as food and energy security and climate change, cannot be resolved without an effective US-Saudi Arabia alliance,” she said.

Reamer stated that the Kingdom is no longer the world leader in energy, but also the world leader in sustainable development. “Through hundreds of billions of dollars of investment in education, technology, economic diversification, and green energy, we have launched a transformation agenda that is unlocking the enormous potential of our young men and women.”

She said they are entering sectors such as construction, mining, and the military and are creating companies, becoming CEOs, and assuming top government posts, “empowered by a government determined to see us succeed.”
She recalled her appointment as the first Saudi woman to an ambassadorial post and noted that what is happening for women in the Kingdom is a “success story we hope others will emulate.”
