Yemen War

Saudi regime reveals its true face supporting Yemen’s separatists

The Saudi regime has revealed its true face with its declared support for Yemen’s separatists in its criminal war against the country for more than four years.

Intense discussions continue between the Saudi regime and Yemeni government officials over a draft agreement submitted by Riyadh to resolve the crisis between the Yemeni government and the so-called “Southern Transitional Council”, which is backed by the UAE.

Yemeni political sources have leaked new implications from the draft Saudi proposal to resolve the crisis, which includes the formation of a new government, involving the “transitional” and other southern components for the first time.

The draft provides for the formation of the government equally from the south and north, and that President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi will be appointed as prime minister, in addition to members of sovereign ministries.

The draft stresses the integration of various military and security formations within the framework of the ministries of defense and interior, which means practically including the forces that were under the UAE and outside the control of the government, to the government agencies in Yemen officially.

The most prominent of the Saudi proposal is to designate Riyadh as the supervisor of the implementation of the agreement, giving it the presence and supervision of the various executive steps.

The Jeddah Dialogue was launched in early September between a delegation from the “transitional” delegation headed by the President of the Council, Aidroos al-Zubaidi, and representatives of the government, but the two sides did not hold any direct public meetings, and continued to communicate instead through Saudi officials holding meetings with both sides.

Observers believe that the Saudi regime is working through the draft of the Jeddah agreement on the equality of the legitimate government in Yemen and the coup party represented by the UAE-backed transitional council as if they represent the role of governance between both sides.

The draft Jeddah agreement provides for the formation of a unity government between the north and south of Yemen, and prohibits the presence of any military force outside the legitimacy.

Observers considered that the Saudis impose themselves as a higher authority than the legitimate authority in Yemen because it decides who will form the security force that will govern the city of Aden and form a political team, which means that the legitimate government is under its authority.

Saudi imposes a “veto” by engaging the Transitional Council and other southern components in the inclusive political dialogue, although all southern parties, with varying composition or funding, have one goal: secession of the south.

It is known that the Transitional Council does not want to participate in government or representation in political participation, but rather to establish a state in the south and form a state of its own.

The Yemeni government appears to be in a weak position with its full financial dependence on the Saudi regime, making it difficult for it to reject any dictations imposed by Riyadh, and pointed to the establishment of tribal leaders and Yemeni political parties in Riyadh.
