Saudi Arabia Defence and Security Report Q1 2015

BMI View: Within an extremely complex region, Saudi Arabia's security and defence situation faces anumber of challenges both on the internal and external front. BMI thinks that Saudi Arabia's defence andsecurity policy-making is been affected by internal political rivalry within the Kingdom. Our view is that itis unlikely to become involved in an interstate conflict, and that its traditional leverage in Yemen, where ithas previously intervened has been weakened. We think that its decision to join the coalition against theIslamic State is illustrative of a continuing counter-terrorism policy in view of its fears of attacks inside theKingdom.

On the interstate front, Saudi Arabia seems to be continuing attempts to improve its relations with Iran toiron out some of the regional instability. On Saudi Arabia's northern border in Q414, we saw Iran shift itsposition in favour of Maliki to whom King Abdullah was strongly opposed. On Saudi Arabia's southernborder, we saw the two states seemingly cooperate in bringing about the Houthi advance in Yemen and bothsides seem willing to strengthen the Lebanese army.
