US, Al Saud plots fueling Yemen crisis: Analyst

Mideast Yemen

Press TV has conducted an interview with Saeb Shaath, an author and Middle East affairs expert from Belfast, and Nabil Mikhail, a professor at George Washington University, to discuss a constitutional declaration by Yemen’s Houthi movement on “Transitional National Council” and the potential reaction from other countries such as Saudi Arabia.

Shaath says the resignation of Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi is a plot hatched by the Al Saud regime and the US to plunge Yemen into political mayhem, adding that Riyadh and Washington would do their utmost to prevent the revolutionaries from taking power in the Arab country.

Meanwhile, Mikhail considers the Houthi movement’s declaration as an important step, saying that Yemen’s future depends on how people would interpret it.

The declaration will definitely lead to more chaos in the country if there is a lack of consensus on the issue, Mikhail says.
