Saudi-UAE Alliance

Whether it is confronting the hostility of the Iranian regime, as it encourages chaos in Yemen and its Al Houthi followers in pledging to fight those who spread terror, or calling out our Arab brothers in Qatar for supporting and inciting those who generate unrest, or collectively aiding those most in need, the governments and people of the UAE and Saudi Arabia have always stood together

Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed is working on splitting the traditional Saudi-UAE Alliance, according to leaked documents gathered by Lebanese newspaper Al Akhbar revealed. Al Akhbar said that the leaked documents included classified diplomatic directions sent by the UAE and Jordanian diplomats in Beirut to their respective governments.

One of the papers, issued on September 20, 2017, unveiled the upshot of a meeting between Jordan’s ambassador to Lebanon Nabil Masarwa and his Kuwaiti counterpart Abdel-Al al-Qenaie. “The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed is attempting to break up the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” the Jordanian envoy quoted the Kuwait ambassador.

A second document, issued on September 28, 2017, unveils meeting minutes between the Jordanian ambassador and his UAE counterpart Hamad bin Saeed al-Shamsi. The document stated the Jordanian ambassador notified his government that UAE believes that “Saudi  Arabian strategy is collapsing both domestically and internationally, especially in Lebanon”.

“The UAE is disappointed with Saudi strategies,” the Jordanian envoy said. According to the leaks, the UAE ambassador alleges that Lebanon voted for Qatar’s Hamad bin Abdulaziz al-Kawari in his attempt to become head of the UNESCO.

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri knew Lebanon was voting for Qatar,” the UAE ambassador said in a cable sent to his government.

In November 2017, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri announced his resignation from Riyadh which astounded the entire world. He later delayed his decision, accusing Iran and their Lebanese ally Hezbollah, for his resignation. He also admitted that he feared an assassination attempt. Government Officials in Lebanon claimed that Hariri was held captive by the Saudi authorities, an accusation Hariri denied in his first public statement after his resignation speech.
