DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 16, 2017, 12:53 PM (IDT)

Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said Thursday that his country is interested in continuing its close and fruitful cooperation with the US under the administration of Donald Trump. He made the comment during his meeting with American Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in the German city of Bonn before the start of a meeting of the top diplomats from G-20 member states. Riyadh is very concerned about the spread of Iranian influence in the Middle East, including Tehran’s involvement in Syria and especially its support of the Houthi rebels in Yemen. As DEBKAfile reported on Wednesday, Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu are aiming to broaden the Israeli-Palestinian peace process to a regional effort including Saudi Arabia and the Gulf emirates.   

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
