S Arabia against stability in Yemen

A senior Yemeni analyst says the ongoing crisis in Yemen is to a large extent the result of a Saudi plot against the country.

Abdullah Kholani, the editor-in-chief of Yemen’s “alwahdawi” newspaper says Yemen has experienced crises after the 1962 revolution, but the current crisis in the country is more dangerous than all the previous ones.

“A large part of the crisis has been created by Saudi Arabia, because the Saudi hardliners have adopted an aggressive stance on Yemen after the Yemeni revolution brought by Nasserites,” Kholani said.

“Yemen’s stability is against Saudi Arabia’s interests, because the Saudi kingdom has been established by colonizers and the global Zionism has supported it before the advent of the golden age of oil,” he added.

The information secretary of the Nasserite Unionist People’s Organization (NUPO) stated that Saudi Arabia worries that stability in Yemen would leave no space in the Arab Peninsula for hardliners.

NUPO is a political party in Yemen that was established in 1965.

Following the September 1962 revolution, the Yemen Arab Republic became closely allied with and heavily dependent on Egypt. Saudi Arabia aided the royalists in their attempt to defeat the Republicans and did not recognize the Yemen Arab Republic until 1970.

Nasserism is an Arab nationalist political ideology based on the thinking of the former Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser. It was a major influence on pan-Arab politics in the 1950s and 1960s.
