Saudi Arabia-Iran confrontation is a fight for supremacy in the region: Political scientist
YEREVAN, JANUARY 14, ARMENPRESS. Saudi Arabia-Iran confrontation is a fight for supremacy in the region. Founder of the Modus Vivendi Center, political scientist Ara Papian expressed such an opinion during the meeting with journalists on January 14.
“After Saddam Hussein’s subversion, when Iraq, as a regional player, went out of order, Iran and Saudi Arabia were left to establish supremacy in the Persian Gulf, and it is one of the most important regions of the world,” Papian said.
He noted that Turkey will also attempt to make use of the conflict.
“Turkey will try to fight against Iran, its age-old opponent and adversary, by means of Saudi Arabia. In other words, this will be a challenge for Turkey too,” Papian emphasized.
The escalated relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran reached their peak when the crowd attacked the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Tehran. The diplomatic ties were cut off between the two countries and they started manifesting their strength and armament with a greater force in Yemen.
