As the sands shift under our very feet, a powerful clandestine alliance has taken hold in the world’s oil production behemoth – the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, popularly known as OPEC+. Its heart pulsates with the tight strategy fostered between Saudi Arabia and Russia, two colossal energy players who have learned to dance in lockstep to a tune that is disrupting the West’s rhythm.
In an unprecedented twist that left Western media gasping for breath, three princely news organizations – Bloomberg, Reuters, and the Wall Street Journal – found themselves exiled from the 35th Ministerial Meeting of OPEC+ held in Vienna. “This is our house,” was the curt reply when questioned about the extraordinary measure, displaying an audacious stance against Western influence and misinformation.
At the epicenter of this seismic shift are Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS), the masterminds of OPEC+ since its inception seven years ago.
To regain control over the global crude oil market that has been capriciously tossed about by the puppet strings of the West.
In a move that is sure to send shockwaves through the grand halls of Washington, Saudi Arabia has formally applied to join the BRICS – the bloc of emerging economies that include Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
The ripples of this decision extend to the New Development Bank, the multilateral development bank established by BRICS, and headquartered in Shanghai, China. Riyadh’s steps toward the BRICS is a stark indicator of the changing global financial dynamic, a blow that might just knock the wind out of the sails of the western banking system.
Further south, a curious development has been taking place, adding more fuel to the fires of conspiracy. On 18 May, Russia and Iran inked ten agreements, laying the groundwork for increased cooperation in the oil industry.
The consequence of these agreements?
Russia now has an open door to extend its reach into any Iranian oil and gas field that Moscow deems worthy, providing another severe blow to the already rattled US.
In the belly of the beast, the recent OPEC+ meeting, Saudi Arabia and Russia emerged as united as ever. The outcome of the lengthy discussions showed that both nations were deeply committed to stabilizing the oil market. By pledging voluntary production cuts and aiming to balance the market, they have unambiguously declared their intentions. As a direct result, oil prices saw an uptick, and markets worldwide took notice.
But make no mistake.
What we’re seeing is far from a happy coincidence.
It’s the materialization of a long-planned chess game. One where the moves are carefully crafted to maximize benefits and create a new world order – an order that firmly places Saudi Arabia and Russia at its helm. The apparent harmony between the two might just be the antidote needed to tackle the chaotic flux of the international energy market.
This invisible hand, steering the ship of OPEC+ is an unshakeable testament to the trust and mutual confidence shared between Saudi Arabia and Russia. In the face of relentless pressure and underhanded tactics from the West, this seemingly invincible alliance is poised to chart a new course in global energy politics.
Call it what you want, but the signs are there for those with the eyes to see.
This isn’t just about oil production; it’s about reshaping the world as we know it.
In this high-stakes game, the Saudi-Russian alliance is a double-edged sword, slashing through the West’s veiled attempts to hold control while carving out a new path for themselves.
The winds of change are blowing fiercely, and we can’t ignore them.
We are standing on the brink of a new era, one where the puppeteers of the past no longer hold the strings.
The Saudi-Russian Accord is more than just a pact; it’s a revolution in the making, and we’d do well to pay attention.
