Sullivan, Bipartisan Senate Delegation arrive in Middle East


Washington (KINY) -U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) and a bipartisan group of United States Senators arrived in Saudi Arabia Friday as part of a larger trip to the Middle East to show solidarity and support for Israel and speak with officials regarding current political affairs and ensure stability and security in the region.

The United States and Saudi Arabia have a common interest in preserving the stability, security, and prosperity of the Gulf region and consult closely on a wide range of regional and global issues.

Members of the bipartisan delegation include U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut), Cory Booker (D-New Jersey), Katie Britt (R-Alabama), Ben Cardin (D-Maryland), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Chris Coons (D-Delaware), Jack Reed (D-Rhode Island), and John Thune (R-South Dakota).

Senator Sullivan is a strong supporter of Israel and has advocated for increased conversation with the United States’ Middle Eastern allies to prevent the worsening of the conflict, especially in regard to the role Iran played in the Hamas terror attacks earlier this month.
