Russia and Qatar: Something New in International Politics

The visit of Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of Qatar to Moscow from Jan. 17-19, and his meeting with Vladimir Putin could not have gone unnoticed. But there is more to it than just the bilateral relations between the two countries. The talks between the two leaders focused on the prospects for a political settlement of the Syrian crisis, as well as the status of the oil and gas market. Both parties reiterated their intention to redouble their efforts to resolve the problems there...

US-led anti-ISIS Coalition: Credibility Lacked, Results Meagre

The US-led coalition was formed in August 2014 to unite dozens of nations and international organizations like NATO, the Arab League and the EU. Formally the number of participants is 62 with the majority of coalition members making extremely modest contribution...

Qatar Ready for Military Intervention in Syria: Reckless Policy Fraught with Dire Implications

The Russian military operation in Syria has divided the Arab world. One side is made up of the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Jordan, which view Russia's actions with optimism. Their attitude was voiced by Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri, who recently said his nation believes «that the Russian operation will impact the fight against terrorism in Syria and help eliminate it». «Russia is concerned by the resistance to terrorism and the purpose of its intervention is a fatal blow to terrorism in Syria, and its strikes are in line with those of the anti-Daesh coalition in Syria and Iraq». he stated...

Saudi Arabia and Russia: new contacts

The upcoming visit to Russia by the king of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz, could signify a milestone in the expanding relationship between the two countries. Relations between Russia and Saudi Arabia go back almost 90 years. The Soviet Union was one of the first countries to recognize the independence of the Saudi government and to establish diplomatic relations with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), which was founded in 1926. The first ambassador the Soviet Union sent to Riyadh was Karim Khakimov, a prominent Soviet diplomat, scholar of the Orient, and public political figure...

Russia, Saudi Arabia: New Turn in Relationship

The event may become a turning point in the relationship. The Prince said that his country considered Russia an important partner and recalled that the Soviet Union was the first country to recognize the Kingdom in 1926...

Obama Meets Arab Allies at Camp David to Address Middle East Security

...The White House continues to call Iran a state sponsoring terrorism, supporting the Syrian regime and violating human rights etc. Obama says the sanctions will be in force even if a nuclear deal is reached in case Iran does not change its reckless behavior. The US Middle East policy appears to be increasingly illogical and dangerous, including not Iran only but Israel as well... The progress on nuclear talks could become a factor of regional stabilization but the policy of Obama administration may turn it into a source of future conflicts.

Saudi Option of Yemen War to Blow Iran P5+1 Deal

The Obama White House pulled out all the stops this week to indulge the «insecure» Persian Gulf Arab oil sheikhdoms. The assurances lavished by President Obama on his guests – with meetings in the Oval Office and later at the presidential retreat Camp David – may assuage Arab feelings of insecurity in the short-term... But there seems little doubt that the bitter relations that have been festering between the Saudi-led GCC and its main Western patron in Washington will continue to deepen and corrode the «extraordinary relationship» that Obama tried to talk up...

Saudi Attempts to Use the Houthis against the Muslim Brotherhood Backfired in Yemen

Yemen is being bombed into accepting a Saudi-mediated pseudo-dialogue that really aims to reinstate Al-Hadi and restore Yemen as an authoritarian state that follows Saudi Arabia and the US. In this context, a mixture of Arabian intrigues, petro-politics, and geopolitics are all at play... The Israeli-Saudi alliance in Yemen is being relieved as the Kingdom and Israel have united with the US against the Houthis. Like the Cold War, mercenaries and foreign fighters will eventually enter the picture too.

Without Equal Security for All, Nuclear Disarmament Is Impossible

In a statement commemorating the fifth anniversary of the New START Treaty between the US and Russia last week, US Secretary of State John Kerry not only expressed hope that both sides would be able to implement the treaty within the specified time frame – by 5 February 2018 – but also renewed calls for Moscow to begin talks on the further reduction of their countries’ nuclear arsenals...
