TEHRAN, Dec 26_Saudi Arabia is bogged down in Yemen as it has failed to achieve any of the objectives of the devastating war it has launched against the Arabian Peninsula country, Sana’a’s ambassador to Tehran tells Press TV.

Exclusive: Saudi Arabia bogged down in Yemen, says Sana’a envoy to IranTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)-In an exclusive interview with Press TV on Wednesday, Ibrahim Mohammad al-Dailami said that at the onset of the war five years ago, Saudis were pursuing several domestic and regional goals.

He said that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman — also known as MbS and seen as the mastermind behind the military campaign against Yemen —was initially after “tuning his country into a regional entity to counter other regional entities and become the main agent for the American project in the region.”

“This would lead to forging ties with the Zionist enemy at all levels. However, his stumbling in Yemen resulted in a real delay for the Saudis to become a regional power and agent for the American-Zionist project in the area,” he said.

“Saudis wanted to achieve quick victory in a matter of weeks or one to two months. However after five years, Saudi Arabia is drowning in Yemen,” he said.

The Yemeni envoy further said that the kingdom has failed to achieve its key objective of “dividing Yemen and stirring up sedition among its people,” adding “the Yemeni nation continues to confront this aggression.”

He said that the US and its close allies — Britain and Israel in particular — are complicit in the atrocities the Riyadh regime has been committing in Yemen, citing their provision of arms, logistics, and intelligence to the Saudi-led coalition waging war on Yemen.
