Arab Daily Reveals Hidden Differences between Riyadh, Abu Dhabi
TEHRAN (FNA)- The secret differences between Saudi Arabia and the UAE have endangered their long-term coalition, a leading Arab daily wrote, adding that it is unlikely that the coalition will continue outside the framework of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC).

Al-Ray al-Youm wrote that despite the coalition between Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and his UAE counterpart Mohammed bin Zayed, strong differences are seen between the two countries on the regional issues.

The report added that Riyadh and Abu Dhabi have different views about Iran, Takfiri groups, Syria and Yemen, and Saudi Arabia considers Iran as the main threat against the regional stability but the UAE believes that the Takfiri groups supported by Riyadh are dangerous to the stability in the region.

Also on Syria, the UAE's cooperation with Damascus has angered Riyadh and Saudi Arabia considers it as a support for Iran, the daily wrote, adding that in Yemen, Abu Dhabi didn’t support Ikhwan al-Muslimoun and preferred former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The Arab newspaper had also on Saturday reported that Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim's recent visit to Riyadh in light of intensified tensions between Ankara and Abu Dhabi has increased differences between Saudi Arabia and the UAE and can lead to the collapse of their coalition against Syria and Yemen.

Sources in the Arab country were quoted by al-Rai al-Youm newspaper as saying that relations between Saudi Arabia and the UAE have darkened in recent months, raising the possibility for Abu Dhabi to withdraw from the anti-Yemen Arab coalition.

They added that Saudi Arabia and the UAE have differences on certain issues, including the war in Yemen and relations with Ikhwan al-Muslimoun (Muslim Brotherhood) group while Riyadh and Ankara are strengthening their ties.

The Arab daily also revealed that an internal stream inside the UAE government is pressuring officials to weaken coalition with Saudi Arabia, seek a way out of the Yemen war and reinvigorate the UAE-Egypt alliance to confront Saudi Arabia and Turkey's rapprochement.

Arab Daily: UAE Distancing from S. Arabia after Riyadh-Ankara Rapprochement
THRAN (FNA)- Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim's recent visit to Riyadh in light of intensified tensions between Ankara and Abu Dhabi has increased differences between Saudi Arabia and the UAE and can lead to the collapse of their coalition against Syria and Yemen, an Arab daily wrote on Saturday.

Sources in the Arab country were quoted by al-Rai al-Youm newspaper as saying that relations between Saudi Arabia and the UAE have darkened in recent months, raising the possibility for Abu Dhabi to withdraw from the anti-Yemen Arab coalition.

They added that Saudi Arabia and the UAE have differences on certain issues, including the war in Yemen and relations with Ikhwan al-Muslimoun (Muslim Brotherhood) group while Riyadh and Ankara are strengthening their ties.

The Arab daily also revealed that an internal stream inside the UAE government is pressuring officials to weaken coalition with Saudi Arabia, seek a way out of the Yemen war and reinvigorate the UAE-Egypt alliance to confront Saudi Arabia and Turkey's rapprochement.

Yildirim arrived in Riyadh on Wednesday and held a meeting with Saudi King Salman and Crown Prince and Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman al-Saud.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 15,300 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Despite Riyadh's claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster, as Saudi Arabia's deadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.

The cholera outbreak in Yemen which began in April, has also claimed over 2,200 lives and has infected about one million people, as the nation has been suffering from what the World Health Organization (WHO) describes as the “largest epidemic in the world” amid a non-stop bombing campaign led by Saudi Arabia. Also Riyadh's deadly campaign prevented the patients from traveling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.

According to reports, the cholera epidemic in Yemen, which is the subject of a Saudi Arabian war and total embargo, is the largest recorded in modern history.
