The Linguistic Behaviour of Mohammed Bin Salman in Response to Biden’s Statements Against Saudi Politics

Khalid Hudhayri


The political events in the region have been a major cause of the radical reform in the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States (US) in recent years. The ties between both are believed to have become further complicated, since the statements through which the current American president, Joe Biden, accused Saudi politics of transgressing human rights. These statements have attracted the attention of the media and questioned the perspective of Saudi politics and the prospective impact on future bilateral cooperation with the U.S. Saudi politicians have never reacted to Biden’s behaviour over the media due to the criticality of explicit political speeches on social perception (Seidel,1985), but I argue here that the conservative reactions of Saudi diplomats have been implicitly transferred through the eloquence of verbal language and the implied meaning of non-verbal language. The focus will be on the deportment of the crown prince, Mohammed Bin Salman, upon hosting Joe Biden in the last political summit held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
