Former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Robert Jordan described the Saudi war on Yemen as an “adventure that could really come back to haunt them.”
During an interview with the CNN, Jordan stressed that Riyadh has no clear strategy in dealing with the crises.
“They have not articulated a strategy. It does appear that they have – their strategy is to be against Iran at every turn and to presume that Iran’s hand is behind every negative act, certainly in their eastern province in Bahrain and now in Yemen,” Jordan told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS.
“We haven’t seen what the political objective is of the adventure in Yemen, and I think this could really come back to haunt them,” said Jordan, who is the author of the new book, Desert Diplomat: Inside Saudi Arabia Following 9/11.
Robert Jordan served as the US ambassador to Saudi Arabia from 2001 to 2003, under President George W. Bush.
