US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo explained in an interview why the United States want to maintain its strategic and operational relationships with the Saudi Wahhabi kingdom that “Today we’re working with the Saudis in Afghanistan, we’re working with the Saudis to push back against Ayatollah Khamenei … they are an enormous support to us.”


He said that Saudi Arabia has been an “enormous support” to the United States on all major global issues and Washington wants to maintain that relationship and will continue to provide military support to the Wahhabi kingdom’s war on Yemen.
The Trump administration faces tremendous domestic and international pressure to review its relationship with Saudi Arabia after Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder at the Saudi consulate Istanbul in October this year.
In an interview to CNN, when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Pompeo if US military support to the Saudis in Yemen will continue, the secretary said: “The programme that we’re involved in today we intend to continue.”
He pointed out that the US-Saudi relationship “has mattered” for 70 years across Republican and Democrat administrations alike. “It remains an important relationship and we’re aiming to keep that relationship with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
