What has Biden gained from his trip to Saudi Arabia? | Inside Story

Three years ago Joe Biden vowed to make Saudi Arabia 'pay the price' for the killing of a journalist.
Now, as the U.S. president, he's on a charm offensive.
Biden needs the kingdom to pump more oil to take the pressure off fuel prices.
He's declared that 'significant business' was accomplished in Jeddah.
But any positive developments from those meetings have been overshadowed by criticism of Biden's visit to the kingdom and his interactions with the crown prince.
So, does this trip pave the way for a new partnership with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region?
