By Riyad interposed, the United States wants to seize the Red Sea

16 December 2018

Interviewed by the Iranian news agency Fars, the Iranian expert on international issues Ahmad Qadiri examined the status and strategic importance of the Red Sea, the strategic region coveted by the United States and its regional allies. The Red Sea, located between South-West Asia and North-East Africa, is linked to two strategic waterways, the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and the Suez Canal. A US hold on this country, would not harm without China and Russia, which they have not remained inactive: In Djibouti, Beijing has placed his backyard while Sudan serves as a springboard for the Russia. And Iran?

The Bab el-Mandeb Strait lies to the south, between Yemen and Djibouti linking the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean. In the North is the Suez Canal connecting the Red Sea to the Mediterranean. The Red Sea is therefore, at the first stage, the transit and connecting place from Europe to West Asia and East Africa. It is also home to the Indian Ocean connection, which makes it possible to access all the maritime regions of the Southern Hemisphere. The two strategic straits of Bab el-Mandeb and the Suez Canal are therefore as important as the Red Sea.

Riyadh hosted a meeting three days ago on the theme of “defining the status of the Red Sea”. Y took part the eight coastal countries plus the United States. No Russian or Beijing representatives. Through this initiative, Saudi Arabia has attempted to lay the foundation stone of what is called the “hub” of the Red Sea and which brings together the states bordering this sea and the Gulf of Aden. This “Saudi initiative” is obviously explained in the context of a “Great Battle” that the United States delivers to China and to a lesser extent to Russia.

On Wednesday, 12 December, Riyadh hosted a meeting of representatives of countries bordering the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden on an initiative proposed by Saudi Arabia to ensure “the stability of the region” and to support international trade against the backdrop of the Atlantic bloc offensive in the Horn of Africa. The agenda of the debates was also concerned with “the security of international maritime routes”, “with the increase of investment in neighboring countries” and “the acceleration of their sustainable development”. the Riyadh-Abu Dhabi axis is waging a war already lost in Yemen against the backdrop of the occupation of all Yemeni ports, including and above all Hudaydah.

“Indeed, the port of Hudaydah is the only and by far the main box that would miss the American puzzle. The Bab el-Mandeb Strait is still under Ansarallah’s control, although the US-NATO-Arab monarchies coalition has all bet on the outcome of the war in Yemen. Months of military offensive involving no less than 24 countries have given nothing and the west coast where are the main strategic maritime sites still escapes the control of the Atlantist camp. Indeed the Yemeni Resistance has managed to impose itself as a major player that the Western camp can no longer ignore and the Stockholm talks are the best evidence. The Saudi war against Yemen is, in fact, part of the American strategy of conquest that aims to militarily and economically dominate the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden and to counter China and Russia. In this table, the Yemeni Resistance acts as a de facto ally of the East “, says the analyst who adds:

Last September, the Iranian president responded to threats from the US administration that threatened to reduce Iran’s oil exports to zero, and in response, President Rohani said if Iran could not export its oil No other country in the region would do this, echoing this warning that Yemeni forces targeted a Saudi ship in the Red Sea, an alert that the side opposite took too seriously Ansarallah has shown that it dominates this waterway and is perfectly capable of blocking the Bab el-Mandeb Strait, and it has been since then that US pressure on Riyadh and Abu Dhabi has increased and the Americans demanded concrete results ”

But the victory in Yemen not being at the rendezvous, the American block in the Red Sea can really see the day? Indeed, “apart from Israel and Ethiopia, other members of this potential bloc, are not sure of the interest that could have them an alliance with Riyadh in Red Sea.” Djibouti is rather leaning on the side of China Sudan is thinking of strengthening its ties with Russia, and Jordan is struggling to recover from the shock of the “Deal of the Century”, while Yemen has been overshadowing large parts of the country. coalit
