LONDON - Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz visited the United Arab Emirates for talks that centred on the war in Yemen and tensions with Iran.

The Saudi crown prince was greeted upon arrival November 27 by Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan and his national security adviser, Sheikh Tahnoun bin Zayed.

Talks between the two crown princes centred on Yemen, where Riyadh and Abu Dhabi are close allies and key members of a military coalition backing the government in Yemen against the Iran-aligned Houthi rebels.

Earlier in November, a power-sharing agreement brokered by Riyadh and Abu Dhabi was reached between the Southern Transitional Council and the Yemeni government, after violence broke out in July.

The peace reached between the STC and the Yemeni government has raised hopes for peace talks to bring an end to the war in Yemen’s main theatre, between the coalition-backed government and the Houthis.

The Saudi crown prince’s visit reflects “agreement between Abu Dhabi and Riyadh… in addressing regional challenges,” the official UAE state news agency WAM reported.

The visit also came a day after the Saudi-led military coalition said it will release 200 Yemeni Houthi rebels and permit some flights from the rebel-held capital, Sana'a.

The initiatives coincided with a lull in Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia launched from Yemeni soil and come after a senior official in Riyadh this month said it had an “open channel” with the Iran-aligned rebels.

Patients needing medical care will be allowed to be flown out of Sana'a airport, which has been closed to commercial flights since 2016, coalition spokesman Turki al-Maliki said in a statement November 26.

The meeting in Abu Dhabi was also an occasion for the Saudi crown prince to extend an invitation to the United Arab Emirates to attend the G20 summit in Riyadh, state TV reported.

Saudi Arabia will host the 15th annual G20 Leaders’ summit November 21-22, 2020, in Riyadh.
