Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will pay an official visit to the UAE today to restore the stalled relations between the two countries and coordinate their positions.
Bin Salman will meet Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed to hold talks between them amid evidence of the faltering alliance between the two countries.
The Kingdom is outraged by the UAE’s continued rapprochement with Iran, which Riyadh sees as its number one enemy in the region.
Months ago, the UAE regime stepped up its treacherous steps with its allies in Saudi Arabia by rebelling against the alliance in the Riyadh war led by Riyadh and courting Iran.
Observers highlight the inability of the UAE to continue in the Saudi coalition and bear the high costs that threaten its security and unity itself, as it finds itself in a state of defeat and decline.
This can be examined further by tracking the successive events that have occurred in recent months as a result of Abu Dhabi’s apparent withdrawal from its presence in Yemen, while progressing towards improving its relations with Iran.
Abu Dhabi is in a hurry to withdraw from the Yemeni scene ostensibly, and may be forced to withdraw tacitly because it fears that it would suffer greater losses, as the United States abandoned the protection of its allies.
Saudi Arabia, along with the UAE, has been leading a war of aggression against Yemen since March 2015 that has killed thousands of Yemeni women, children and civilians.
Bin Salman’s visit to the UAE comes as Riyadh has held indirect negotiations with the Houthis for weeks in an effort to reach a truce agreement and find a political entrance to end the Yemen war.
It also comes amid frequent reports of progress in mediations to end the Gulf crisis between Saudi Arabia and Qatar and the attempts of the UAE regime to sabotage it in order to serve its plots.
Prince Mohammed bin Salman is expected to attend the Formula One Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi last year.
The visit of Mohammed bin Salman to the UAE is the second in nearly a year; Prince Mohammed bin Salman visited the UAE on 22 November last year.
He then held talks with bin Zayed on “ways to strengthen brotherly relations and a number of regional and international issues of common interest.”
