Is what happened in #Riyadh & outcomes of the #Yemeni_Yemeni_talks a good or bad thing? Been monitoring commentaries & here are mine.
1. If there was 1 single thing that had widest consensus amongst Yemenis it would be that former leadership structure was...
a core problem for resolving conflict or stabilising Yemeni government areas.
2- Formation of Presidential Council reflect current military reality in Yemeni government areas & nomination of Pres. Rashad Al Alimi wasn't based on being common denominator only but also competence.
3- a four southern leadership out of 8 member council dilutes risk of destructive secession while sustains importance of resolving souther political & social grievances.
4- Keeping mandate of the Presidential Council to political, security & military intends to protect economy.

Although I personally understand the Saudi concerns which led to this policy, I see it as a huge mistake and that Saudi Arabia will not be a winner from it. Surprisingly, the biggest winners from this energy crisis are #Russia and #Iran.
1/7
#KSA #USA #Biden #Ukraine #Israel #UAE
Because of the ongoing war on #Ukraine and the economic sanctions on #Russia , the rise in energy prices makes the imports of oil gas very important to cover #Moscow's depletion in other fields.
2/7
Moscow has already started exploiting the card of energy externally as well by blackmailing Europe and raising its exports to eastern countries at much lower prices.

With #OPEC Plus clinging to #oil pumping operations at nearly the same level, which leads to a continuous rise in fuel prices globally, in my opinion, the key to this crisis is in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

#KSA #USA #Russia #Ukraine #EU #NATO #Iran Image
As it is known, #Riyadh is the second largest oil exporter in the world with about 10 mbd and the second largest reserves. #SaudiArabia also leads the #OPEC, which includes a number of oil exporters, making it an important influence on global oil prices.
2/8
It is important to stress that the current rise started since the 4th quarter of last year, months before Russian invasion in #Ukraine, with assurances from #US, confirming its attempt to communicate with the Saudi side to raise the level of production, hitting a dead end.

#Iran launched six precision missiles Fateh-110 Iranian missiles against a Mossad base in #Erbil #Iraq in retaliation to #Israel killing of 2 Iranian officers in #Syria. No official statements were delivered by either side. These are "messages" both sides understand.
#Iran temporarily suspended the (fifth) meeting with #SaudiArabia in #Iraq programmed for next Wednesday the 16th of March following the mass execution carried out by #Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia executes 81 people in a single day aje.io/v9vx72 via @AJEnglish
#Breakingnews:

#Iran sources told @Almayadeen_News that "4 #Israel/i Mossad officers were killed and 7 wounded during the bombing of their base in Erbil, Kurdistan, #Iraq."

1.Add to that Saudi-Arabia's decision to stand by the 2020 oil pact with #Russia (ie not pump more #Oil into the market)
#Putin seems to have had a clear picture when he made the decision that in the short-term he has #OPEC backing and that the West was still dependent on his gas
2. The pact was achieved after the price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia in early 2020. The Saudis were willing to reach a compromise with Russia after #Trump intervened and threatened to halt military aid to #Riyadh if it doesn't come to terms with Moscow.
3. Presumably Trump was making that effort on behalf of American #LNG exporters that were under threat of going out of business due to the low price environment.
Russia has been courting Saudia and the Emirates since the 1970s. Previously the Soviet Union supported...

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.

2/ 🎢 What looks glamorous now with an upcoming bell ringing (virtually or not), was definitely a 9 year roller coaster: we went from ecstasy to confusion, from backstabbing to vindication - all within days. I will talk about how we made it through & what's #Chapter2 #Startup
3/ 🚨How many times were we close to sinking?
A lot. Some stories are mind boggling. I will get to that thread one day. Most of the times we came out strong, but a few times, It was really rough. We only made it because we believed in each other.

#SaudiArabia #Riyadh #Investment

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.

#SaudiArabia #Riyadh #Umrah #Coronavirus

After a month-long break due to the corona pandemic, Saudi Arabia wants to gradually resume the umrah, the so-called small pilgrimage.
The Ministry of the Interior in Riyadh announced that the restrictions on the umrah would be relaxed from October 4th. In a first phase beginning on October 4th,
6,000 people are expected to take part in the umrah every day, the ministry said, according to the state news agency Sana. The regulation initially only applies to Saudi Arabian citizens and permanent residents of the kingdom.

#Pakiatan #SaudiArabia #Islamabad #Riyadh #China

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.
