Saudi Arabia is set to go continue fighting the Houthis in Yemen despite international law, and its main goal is to gain control over the oil route, the Bab el-Mandeb strait in the Red Sea, political analyst Catherine Shakdam told RT.
RT: Russia’s Foreign Ministry has been calling for the conflicting sides to start negotiating. Is peace possible anytime soon?
Catherine Shakdam: I don’t think so and for the main reason that Saudis don’t want to stop. As far as international law is concerned they have proven already that they don’t care, and that they are willing to go as far as they want to go. And to do that they are willing to call on a broad Arab coalition regardless of international law or international regulations.
