US national security adviser to travel to Saudi Arabia for talks with crown prince

White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan plans to travel to Saudi Arabia for talks with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman amid a US push for progress in normalizing relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia. Talks on normalization have resumed after being put on hold following recent conflicts. Sullivan's visit is to check in on the issue but no major breakthrough is expected. The discussions will cover a range of matters. Saudi Arabia wants a mutual defense pact with the US and support for its civil nuclear program as part of a normalization deal. The talks focus on the bilateral portion of a larger plan that includes the recognition of Israel by Saudi Arabia and progress on the creation of a Palestinian state.
