The Axios news site is reporting that the White House has been working on a “roadmap for normalization” between Israel and Saudi Arabia, ahead of US President Biden’s visit to the Middle East next month.
The site cites four US sources who were briefed on the matter.
According to the sources, the White House said during a briefing with think tank experts about Biden’s trip that there will not be an agreement before the Middle East visit, but they are working on it and the president will discuss it with Israeli and Saudi leaders.
Another source cited by Axios says the White House thinks any roadmap for normalization will take time and will be a long-term process.
A different source describes the strategy as a step-by-step approach, the news site says.
