A Race to Close a Gamechanging Deal With Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Israel

Israeli Prime minister Netanyahu had a meeting with Saudi meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

There are also reports that Saudi Arabia is pressuring Pakistan to normalize relations with Israel.

The Brookings Institute believes there are three possibilities for the Israel-Saudi meeting.

1. Actually achieving some normalization deal would make it difficult for Biden to re-enter a nuclear deal with Iran. The current US administration can still place the Houthis on the terrorist list and place new sanctions on Iran.
2. The meeting itself is telling the Biden Administration that another US-Iran nuclear deal could force an Israel-Saudi deal without the involvement of the USA. Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States could even a military campaign against Iran.
3. The meeting could be to coordinate a strike against Iran before the change in US administration
