Saudi Arabia



Print page

I was born in Saudi Arabia, and I moved to the Untied States when I was four years old. I don’t remember much of living their but I know I’ve always loved being around my family and visiting. We moved to the United States because my dad works for the government of Saudi Arabia, and he got a request to be sent to the Saudi Embassy in D.C. Saudi Arabia is a very hot country, and always sunny. I love going there during the summer to visit my house, family and friends. Most of my time I spend it with family and gatherings, I enjoy them a lot because I would see people I haven’t seen in years because they live in different cities and don’t always visit Jeddah, the city I live in. I usually visit there twice a year during the summer and the winter break and I stay there for as long as the break is.

Here is the link for my research, and these are information’s I found between Saudi Arabia and Untied States history.

Saudi Arabia is one of the few countries today that still remains an absolute monarchy  , that is ruled by the royal family named Alsaud. It has one of the highest oil production rates, which brought the united states and saudi arabia together in the industrial 20th century.  Relations between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States of America in 1933 when full diplomatic relations were established after WWI and just before WWII. Despite the differences between the two countries—an ultraconservative Islamic absolute monarchy, and a secular, democratic republic, the two countries have been strong political and economic allies. In recent years, the two countries have occasionally been described as having a Special Relationship which they share with the U.K. After the War of Terror, some americans have been judging Saudi Arabia in a negative way, although what gathers them together is the oil and the strength of a shared economy. Saudi Arabia’s location has also allowed the american military to have a strong presence in the middle east. Saudi Kingdom has also bought high tech military equipment from the United States.
