After three hours of meetings with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and crown prince, US President Joe Biden says after months of “quiet diplomacy” the US has “accomplished significant business.”

Biden calls the Saudi decision to open their airspace to all civilian carriers “a big deal, not only symbolically but substantively.”

“This is the first tangible step on the path of what I hope will be a broader normalization of relations”
