Saudi Arabia angered by U.S. policy on Iran and Syria. Kingdom will keep its own game

Publication time: 1 October 2013, 15:26

The Wall Street Journal published an article about the reaction of Saudi Arabia on the latest developments in the Middle East policies of president Barack Obama.

 

Obama's handling of overtures on Syria and Iran have outraged its regional ally Saudi Arabia, which is signalling its wish to do more to boost the power of armed Islamic rebel groups on the ground in Syria.

 

Saudi Arabia, according to its foreign minister prince Saud al-Faisal, fears that "al-Assad will use the time afforded to commit more killing and torture Syrians".

 

Saudi Arabia and the UAE in particular are concerned about two changes in the region - Americans giving Assad an opportunity to get rid of chemical weapons arsenal, and, thus, preventing a possibility of American attack on Syria, and the dialogue between president Obama and Iranian counterpart Rouhani.

 

The statement by prince Saud al-Faisal is especially important because the Saudis can arm Muslim rebel forces who are opposed to the west and are considered to be the most effective force in the war against the Alawite regime of Assad and Shiite regime in Iran.

 

Saudi Arabia feels that Obama administration does not take into account its interests and concerns related to Syria and Iran, and thus will act accordingly - ignoring the interests and wishes of the United States in Syria.

 

Meanwhile, Americans try to intimidate Saudis by saying that Saudi Arabia's active participation in the war in Syria could lead to undesirable consequences for Saudis themselves.

 

The New York Times publishes a map of "possible consequences" of the collapse of Syria. According to the newspaper, the wave of fragmentation could potentially engulf other countries in the region, including Saudi Arabia, allegedly threatening the "Balkanization" and the division into several states.

 

Recall that a few days ago, according to Reuters, Saudi Arabia has promised to largely increase the chances of Syrian rebels to win. According to Saudi foreign minister prince Saud al-Faisal, Riyadh will help Syrian rebels with everything they need, "whether it may be weapons or finance".

 

Simultaneously, a group of countries called the "Friends of Syria", decided to increase support for the Syrian opposition. In particular, the aid will be earmarked for the "Syrian National Coalition", which has been rejected by the Mujahideen and secular rebels from the FSA, as well.
