WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A former US diplomat said on Thursday that international pressure on Saudi Arabia over its recent positions in Lebanon and its capture by resigning Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri had increased, pointing out that it had lost its wars against Iraq and Syria.
"What is happening in Saudi Arabia from internal events and changes in governance indicates the slackness and weakness of Saudi Arabia after the expansion of its confrontations and interventions in the Gulf and the Middle East and came out weaker than the war in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and other countries and now put by the Lebanese crisis in Lebanon," the newspaper said. Very embarrassing to the world. "
The source pointed out that "the Saudi steps towards Lebanon is abnormal," and expected "more international pressure on Saudi Arabia because Lebanon's security and economic stability is a priority for the American and European West."
"The future of the situation in Saudi Arabia is unknown, because it is linked to the policies of the United States, the situation in the Gulf, the region and the compromises that have not yet been made clear between Moscow and Washington," he said. Ending / 25
