A senior Yemeni opposition figure said that Saudi Arabia is showing strong opposition to the ongoing popular uprisings in the region, particularly in Yemen, and helps dictators remain in power in such countries because Riyadh fears that these regional revolutions are likely to spread to Saudi Arabia.
"It is natural for Saudi Arabia to be annoyed of Yemen's revolution because it shares border with Yemen and feels the fear that the Yemeni revolution may spread to it as well," Secretary-General of the Alliance of Yemeni Tribes Abolfadhl al-Saudi told FNA on Sunday.
"Riyadh is also seeking to keep Yemen dependent on itself," he stated.
Saudi voiced confidence about the final victory of the Yemeni protesters over Ali Abdullah Saleh's regime, and called on Saudi Arabia to accept the realities and rest assured that all Arab revolutions will eventually yield results.
"If they fear these revolutions and their extension to Saudi Arabia, they should start reforms as soon as possible," the Yemeni opposition figure stressed.
Proponents of Yemen's revolution are furious at Saudi Arabia because they believe that massacre of the people by the forces loyal to the dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh has increased ever since he returned from Saudi Arabia with Riyadh's logistical and diplomatic support.
Saleh escaped to Saudi Arabia earlier this year after he was wounded by the revolutionary forces in his palace. However, Riyadh gave him full support and provided him with his needed logical backup and opportunity to return to Yemen.
The Yemeni revolutionaries say that Saleh has intensified the clampdown on the people after the Saudi-led Arabic Gulf Cooperation Council presented its initiative and bought time for Saleh to return to the country and gather its forces.
The Yemeni opposition had also earlier blasted Washington and Riyadh for the current stalemates in the country, stressing that the US and Saudi Arabia has blocked the path of the Yemeni revolutionary forces to victory.
Two months ago, the Yemeni opposition revealed that Saudi Arabia had sent armored vehicles and other military aids to Yemen to help the forces loyal to the country, and then fugitive dictator, Ali Abdullah Saleh, suppressed the popular uprising in the Arab country.
A motorcade of Saudi armored vehicles and military aid entered the Yemeni soil to help the forces of the regime of Ali Abdullah Saleh, Members of the Yemeni Opposition added.
