According to the SPA, the crown prince emphasized his country's attitude in the telephone conversation to "support everything that contributes to de-escalation". Riyadh is still willing to mediate between Kyiv and Moscow. Last month, Saudi Arabia surprisingly contributed to a prisoner swap between Russia and Ukraine.
The move was widely seen as a diplomatic slap in the face to the US, which had explicitly opposed it. US President Joe Biden announced "consequences" and a reassessment of relations with Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia then assured that the decision was made "purely for economic reasons". It is by no means a matter of "partisanship by the Kingdom in international conflicts".
