#Sanaa’s Stipulations Confuses US Policy in #Yemen

#Washington was counting on its success by embarrassing Sana’a, given the relations it had with the

#Saudi War on #Yemen. 6 year Epic Failure: #Riyadh’s colonial genocide enriches depraved #USA and #UK .. #Video…
6 years have passed already. Yesterday I saw an old map of North #Yemen in the 1970s.. The borders were nearly identical to the #Houthi held area today. So what went wrong? Yemen should never have been made into one State.

Reports on #Iran-#SaudiArabia intelligence contact in #Iraq.

#Zarif leaves #Qatar. #Saudi FM lands in #Doha, invites Emir Sheikh Tamim to meet the King in #Riyadh.

#Tehran (& the #US?) appears to try to take the #Gulf on board.

This could isolate #Israel in a revived #JCPOA.
Some in #Vienna appear to want to isolate #Israel. But officials in #Gulf/#GCC face a difficult choice. They have to weigh if a compromise on #JCPOA and weakening Israel's position will resolve the problem of #Iran's malign activities? Or will it be a temporary solution?
The #US is directly engaging #GCC on #JCPOA, while FM #Zarif engages #SaudiArabia through #Qatar and #Iraq.

If the #Gulf comes aboard, #Israel and #Republicans will be effectively sidelined.

No mention was made of the facts that a Saudi invasion, not Iranian meddling, began this war, which has led to what has been assessed as the world's worst humanitarian crisis, in 2015;that the Saudi occupiers, who receive at least 70% of their weapons
from their chief strategic partner, the #US, have killed thousands of #Yemeni civilians; that while #Houthi missile strikes have mainly targeted Saudi military installations and oil infrastructure, the #Saudis and their invasion partners have indiscriminately attacked
civilians, partially or completely destroying over 500 healthcare facilities and bombing over 100 ambulances, even as the Covid-19 pandemic has ravaged the country.

But the #Houthi moves also point to the simpler, more-sinister reason why this war has turned so violent:

How could Washington give #AnsarAllah reason to see a ceasefire as a better path than continued warfare?

To begin, the U.S. could demonstrate goodwill by convincing Saudi Arabia to end the blockade of #Yemen, including the airport in Sana’a and
the port at #Hodeida, both under #Houthi control.

Such a step would signal the #Biden administration’s commitment to concrete steps aimed at helping to wind down this conflict and address unfolding humanitarian concerns. In the process, if the #Saudis agree to lifting the
blockade, the #Houthis could, in turn, agree to halt all attacks on #Saudi territory to address #Riyadh’s legitimate security concerns.

Regardless of how the Biden administration approaches the #Houthi movement, it is safe to say that the future of large areas of northern

#Yemen warns of attacking the Saudi Arabian oil giant’s facilities if a Riyadh-led coalition waging a war against the country strikes oilfields in a western province that is being liberated by #Yemeni forces.

relayed the
message to the Saudi kingdom via diplomatic channels as #Yemen’s Army and Popular Committees are nearing the “Safer” oilfields in the west-central Ma’rib Province, Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Akhbar newspaper reported on Tuesday.
Saudi Arabia’s #Aramco oil company serves as the backbone of the kingdom’s economy.

The #Yemeni government told #Riyadh from its seat in the capital #Sana’a that the area featuring the oilfields was its “redline.”

On Monday, Saudi Arabia stated that it plans to quit signing agreements with foreign companies that do not have their Mideast headquarters in the kingdom, state-run media said, a bold decision that could intensify the region's market rivalry.
The decision will take effect on January 1st. According to an unnamed official cited by the state-run Saudi Press Agency, 2024 aims to solicit foreign investment, improve the productivity of state expenditure and boost local jobs.
For international companies that work with government departments, organisations and funds, the rule applies.

Read this, it is my an ongoing investigation:

When the #US unlawfully assassinated #Iran Sardar Qassem Soleimani, the #IRGC cdr was carrying a message to #Iraq PM Adel Abdul Mahdi who also asked him to visit #Baghdad following a direct request of mediation by Donald Trump.+
No doubt that Trump and his team cowardly planned the assassination and created circumstances for a setup to bring Sardar Soleimani to #Iraq, a trip that was not on his schedule.
But above all, Soleimani carried a message from Sayyed Ali Khamenei to #SaudiArabia. +
Is it the rapprochement between #SaudiArabia and #Iran the reason behind assassinating Sardar Soleimani? A normalisation of relationship between #Tehran and #Riyadh certainly damages the #US national interest.+

By attacking #Iran overtly at the UN, #SaudiArabia helped #Tehran to take its gloves off & express directly & explicitly the nature of the Saudi regime and its sponsors of terrorism (AQ and ISIS). This will reflect upon Iran's allies: no more suave effort.
#SaudiArabia has been an ally of #Israel since 1980 but #Iran never wanted to break the relationship w/ Riyadh or overtly act against it as Saudi did. Fear of a sectarian war was greater & that kept Iran cautiously flirting w/ Saudi but confronting it in the field through allies.
Now that #SaudiArabia has lost its sectarian war in #Syria and #Iraq, is not (and shall not) managing to submit #Yemen, has lost its allies in #Lebanon where #Hezbollah (Iran ally) has won, #Riyadh is turning towards the #UN and wishes fight to the last American against #Iran.

Pakistan – Ties with Saudi Arabia are on a historically low ebb. Saudi Arabia announced a $6.2 billion US loan package for cash-strapped Pakistan in November 2018.
The plan included a total of $3 billion in loans, and a $3.2 billion oil credit facility. But then, Riyad demanded the return of the $3 billion loan and refused to sell oil on deferred payment to Islamabad.
Pakistan, in response, immediately returned to the Saudis $1 billion, signaling a distance from Riyadh. Apparently, the differences between the two countries emerged after Saudi Arabia sided with India in recent tensions over Kashmir.
