Independent 2nd Part: Article about Trump Mentioning Putin

Recommended Posts

 ESET    1,226



Most intriguing, however, is Vladimir Putin’s reaction to the Qatar crisis.

He quickly expressed his support for Qatar – although avoiding any criticism of Saudi Arabia.

And no wonder. For just days before almost all the Gulf Arabs broke relations with Qatar, Saudi Deputy Crown Prince and Defence Minister Mohammed bin Salman – hero of the disastrous Yemen war – visited the Kremlin for talks with Mr Putin.

Ostensibly, these evolved around Syria and oil prices. But now Qataris, and no doubt Saudis, are wondering if bin Salman did not tell Mr Putin of the crisis-to-come – and whether Mr Putin warned the Saudis not to invade Qatar.

After all, it’s one thing for Mr Putin to be accused of the violent suppression of “rebels” in Syria.

Quite another if he can show himself to be the peacemaker of the Arab Gulf.
