UAE-Saudi relations are in crisis – EADaily, March 5, 2023 – Politics News, Middle East News

The Wall Street Journal, citing the authorities of the Arabian Gulf monarchies, spoke about strained Saudi-Emirati relations.

The absence of UAE President Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud from organized bilateral events is a deliberate act and is indicative of a widening gap between Abu Dhabi and Riyadh.

While the UAE and Saudi Arabia are still considered allies, they have disagreements on a number of fronts, rooted in the competition between the two countries to attract foreign investment and gain influence in global oil markets. Riyadh and Abu Dhabi also disagree on the war in Yemen.

The Emirates are concerned that Saudi Arabia is acting against their interests. On the other hand, the Saudis are also concerned about the Emirates, which threaten Saudi Arabia’s dominance in the Persian Gulf.
