All eyes are on US President Joe Biden's trip to Saudi Arabia, which is taking place two years after the president declared the country a pariah state.
Biden has justified his visit as an exercise in realism, but some may see it as the leader having to eat humble pie, amid record US gasoline prices and global tensions arising from the war in Ukraine. We ask Middle East expert Dr. James Dorsey on the expected outcomes of the visit.
