The article focuses on Saudi-U.S. relations. Bilateral ties have been reinforced by U.S. President George W. Bush's re-election in 2004, and by Saudi Arabia's agreement to step up oil production this year. In one indication of closer ties, the two countries are discussing a Free Trade Agreement. Risks remain to the relationship, as there is opposition to it in both countries. The U.S.-Saudi relationship appears to have strengthened since Bush was re-elected in November 2004. Prior to the election, Bush's rival for the presidency, Senator John Kerry, had made the Saudi relationship a key election issue.
