 Saudi Arabia has close relations with the United States. The United States is Saudi Arabia's most important strategic partner and the main weapon supplier. The United States is Saudi Arabia's largest trading partner, and Saudi Arabia is an important source of oil for the United States. The two countries have common strategic interests. 

 

 

 

For many years, Saudi Arabia has pursued the oil diplomacy concept of "exchanging oil for security", that is, exchanging oil for close ally relations with the United States. According to the informal agreement, Saudi Arabia provides cheap crude oil in exchange for the security provided by the United States. Since the United States became a net oil importer in 1974, Saudi Arabia has been the United States' largest oil supplier. 

 

 

 

The oil-based relations between Saudi Arabia and the United States have developed in-depth after World War II. Not only are they economically dependent on each other, but they also cooperate closely in military affairs. After the Gulf crisis broke out in August 1990, the US military stationed in Saudi Arabia, and the military cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the US reached its peak. After 1996, the relations between the two countries entered a period of adjustment. After the "September 11" incident, the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States was hit, and the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States was cold. 

 

 

 

However, Saudi Arabia emphasized its determination to fight terrorism and increased its efforts to counter terrorism. Because the United States is striving to implement a tough military and foreign policy, the general public in Saudi Arabia has no anti-American sentiment.
