INU - Britain and Saudi Arabia released a joint statement on Saturday, vowing to strengthen the ties and cooperation on issues that were important to both countries, like weakening Iran’s regional influence and disarming Iran proxy Hezbollah.
British Prime Minister Theresa May and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman both agreed, at the end of Prince Mohammed’s state visit to the UK, that they would support the Lebanese government in its attempts to extend its control over Lebanese territory and that it is important to “disarm the Hezbollah militia and confront its destabilizing role”, according to the Saudi Press Agency.
They also agreed that the Iranian Regime needed to stop interfering in the domestic affairs of fellow countries and instead “abide by the principles of good neighbourliness”, which included taking “concrete and practical steps to build confidence and resolve its differences with its neighbours by peaceful means”.
This would, no doubt, include Lebanon, where the Iranian Regime has proxy control of the government through its terrorist militia Hezbollah and constantly interferes in the running of Lebanon to Iran’s advantage, even threatening the life of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri in 2017.
It is part of the Iranian Regime’s strategy for turning an independent nation into a vassal state through the use of proxy militias. First, Iran will support a proxy militia (or multiple proxies) in order to dangerously destabilise the country, and then the Iranian Regime will either swoop in to take control themselves or wait until the international community agrees to power-sharing government, with both the legitimate government and Iranian proxy holding power, as has happened in Lebanon, Iraq, and someday soon Yemen.
In Yemen, the Iranian Regime is supporting the Houthi terrorist militia against the internationally-recognised Yemeni government and now some in the international community are speculating that the Houthis may have to enter a power-sharing government, which would leave Iran in charge.
During that three-year-long conflict, the Iranian Regime has supplied the Houthis with weapons, including ballistic missiles, in spite of two UN resolutions.
These weapons have been used against the Yemeni people and the Saudi-led Arab alliance, which is backed by the UN Security Council, seeking to restore the legitimate government. Dozens of the Iranian-made ballistic missiles have even been fired at Saudi Arabia by the Houthis, as addressed by the UN in a recent report.
The civil war in Yemen has already caused a humanitarian crisis, with 22.2 million people dependent on food aid and many displaced from their homes.
