Relations between the US and Saudi Arabia have soured since the decision of OPEC Plus, the Organization of the Oil Exporting Countries, to cut oil production. The US says that this decision of OPEC Plus will benefit Russia, which is causing havoc in Ukraine. However, Saudi Arabia, which dominates OPEC Plus, has also presented a clarification on its behalf. Meanwhile, Saud Al Shalan, the cousin of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has threatened Western countries without naming America.
The video of Prince Saud Al Shalan, the cousin of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), is going viral on social media. In the video, Prince Saud is seen telling Western nations, ‘Whoever challenges the existence of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, we are all made for jihad and martyrdom. This is for all those who think they can threaten us.
According to Saudi human rights lawyer Abdullah, the jihad challenger to Western countries, Saud al-Shalan, is the grandson of Saudi Arabia’s founder King Abdulaziz. This statement of Saud Al Shalan comes at a time when the US is continuously making sharp remarks about Saudi Arabia’s decision to reduce oil production.

Saudi Arabia did not do what America thought
Actually, America is angry with OPEC Plus’s decision to cut oil production. America was constantly in talks with Saudi Arabia to increase oil production. America feared that the world is going on, if oil production is cut, then the prices of crude oil will start touching the sky.
US President Joe Biden arrived in Saudi Arabia in the year 2022, sidelining the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Where Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman hosted him. Jamal Khashoggi’s murder has been accused of killing Mohammed bin Salman.
Since his visit to Saudi Arabia, Joe Biden had full hope that Saudi Arabia, which has a significant stake in OPEC Plus, would not allow the decision to cut oil production. But contrary to Biden’s thinking, OPEC Plus decided to cut oil production by 2 million barrels per day.
Since the decision of OPEC Plus, America has become very angry with Saudi Arabia. America has even said that there will be consequences for this decision. Along with this, Saudi Arabia was also accused that this decision has been taken to benefit Russia. Several US lawmakers also advised Saudi Arabia to stop supplying arms.
However, Saudi Arabia also presented an explanation after the tough statements of America. Saudi Arabia completely denied all these allegations. At the same time, Saudi Arabia said that this decision of OPEC Plus was completely economic. Saudi said that if this decision was not taken, then its negative impact would have been seen in the coming times.
