The United States is displeased with the performance of the Saudi Deputy Crown Prince, Mohammad Bin Salman, in Yemen and asked him to find a face-saving exit to the offensive against the Arab impoverished country, Saudi political activist, Mujtahid said.
On his Twitter account, the Saudi activist, who is believed to be a member of or have a well-connected source in the royal family, clarified the remarks by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir on Wednesday.
In a joint press conference with his British counterpart, Philip Hammond, al-Jubeir said that the military action against Yemen “appeared to be heading towards a conclusion.”
The United States asked Mohamamd Bin Salman, who is Defense Minister, to stop the offensive against Yemen and to find a face-saving exit to the attack, Mujtahid tweeted.
The Saudi activist noted that Washington is displeased with the rising influence of al-Qaeda and ISIL in Yemen.
This dissatisfaction is because of the failed performance of the Saudi attack, Mujtahid said, noting that there is dispute between the Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
The dispute is clear through the disagreement between the fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his prime minister Khaled Bahhah, where Hadi is backed by Riyadh and Bahah is backed by Abu Dhabi, Mujtahid said.
The failure of the Saudi-led coalition’s performance is also due to the pressure staged by the Yemeni army and Ansarullah revolutionaries (known as Houthis), he indicated.
The Saudi activist said that Saudi forces are unable to confront the attacks staged by the Yemeni side on the border areas of Jizan, Najran and Dhahran Al-Janoub.
