Saudi Arabia is resolute in its efforts to establish a military agreement that mandates US defense of the kingdom in exchange for forging overt diplomatic relations with the Israeli Occupation.
While some Palestinian restrictions may be eased, the aspirations and chances for statehood are expected to trickle down the list of priorities, in line with previous Arab-Israeli Occupation agreements.
The pact, although potentially falling short of NATO-style guarantees, aims to secure US protection in the event of an attack or territorial threats.
This move holds significant implications for reshaping the geopolitical landscape in the Middle East, uniting historic rivals and solidifying ties between Riyadh and Washington.
Saudi Arabia's willingness to compromise on certain demands, including civilian nuclear technology plans, signals its determination to secure a deal.
To advance the peace process, the Israeli Occupation must make concessions, including transferring Occupied Palestinian territory in the West Bank to the Palestinian Authority, limiting settlement activity, and refraining from annexation steps.
While Saudi Arabia seeks to maintain an open door to a two-state solution, the deal is unlikely to address certain contentious issues, as recognized by CNBC.
