Why Obama paid a visit to Riyadh? By Alexander Orlov

1 April 2014 — New Eastern Outlook

rdn_533631d0d168cThe deterioration of the situation in Ukraine made substantial changes in the agenda of talks of U.S. President Obama with Saudi leadership in Riyadh on March 28 this year.

10 March 2014 – Strategic Culture Foundation
