Saudi Arabia renewed contacts for signing a defense alliance agreement with the United States, which it froze following the war between Israel and Hamas, Bloomberg reported, citing sources familiar with the talks. 

According to the sources, talks on the matter took place this month in the city of Al-Ula in northwestern Saudi Arabia, and were attended by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and several U.S. senators. 

The defense alliance was supposed to be included as part of a package deal, which would include, among other things, normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia. (Ynet)
