The United States has reportedly stopped asking Saudi Arabia to pump more oil to combat market disruption from Russia’s war with Ukraine as the relationship between the U.S. and the oil rich kingdom is said to have hit a new low.

President Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan brought up the 2018 killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in a meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman which angered the crown prince to the point where he told Sullivan never to mention it again and to forget about Saudi Arabia increasing its oil production, according to a Wall Street Journal report on Wednesday,

The report states that the Biden administration has since asked Saudi Arabia to increase production as gas prices soar in the United States amid Russia’s war with Ukraine and the conversations have gone nowhere.

A senior U.S. official told the Wall Street Journal that the White House has now stopped asking for more oil production from Saudi Arabia and now asks only that the country avoid actions that hurt U.S. interests in Ukraine.

The Saudis reportedly cut short a visit with a high-level Biden administration military delegation last summer while also canceling a visit with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin last fall and Secretary of State Antony Blinken last month.

Despite the perceived tension, a Saudi official at the country’s Washington embassy told the Wall Street Journal the relationship between the two nations remains strong, cordial, and respectful.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.

Karl Rove, a former George W. Bush adviser, toldFox News on Tuesday that a recent skit mocking Biden on Saudi television is a signal of the rift between the two countries that has also been exacerbated by the Biden administration’s negotiations with Iran on a nuclear deal.
