State oil giant and producers for Saudi have bought oil from its market and will drop the cargo on Yemen ports in the next week it was told by the reuters of oil based industry in Saudi. Out of this action Yemen would receive 500,000 tons of oil in January.
For over a 33 year rule of Ali Abdullah Saleh has brought the worst conditions which was directly favored by the Saudi Government has now changed their views about Saleh’s rule. The country was getting poor and under the western influence due to which the protests against the government broke out. Sources say that Saudi Arab would now try to establish their good image on the Yemen population as their foreign policy does not come in a direct dispute with any country. The aid that has now been promised is a gesture to overcome their past history in favor of the Yemen rule, but it is going to help the country gain stability quickly.
Both the Governments have firmly agreed to get the gasoline and gas oil from Aramco oil based company which would study the shortage and try to overcome it qucikly, so people would not be protesting so promptly. Saudi government has also claimed that US and European trades that were made through Bab Al-Mandab strait would also be given a second thought and the problems that Yemen has faced on exporting oil to the states would also be tried to overcome and solved within the next month regardless of the tough social situation prevailing in the country and Yemen would be brought back to its original state of exporting oil.
Saudi government has also mentioned that the threat that Iran has given on shuting down the biggest oil export route Strait of Hormuz would cause problems and delay on bringing stability to the country whereas secure passages and lanes should be sorted out quickly and made effective, under the assistance of western powers.
Saudi official sources have also said that “although this may seem like a donation but it is not, it is to say and tell who is a friend and who is not, it is only made effective so to develop a stronger bond of friendship with our troubled neighbor.” This is the second time when Saudi government has helped the Yemen government to establish stability as in June last year after the main oil based pipelines were damaged in a blast Saudi government donated 3 million barrels of crude oil so industries in Yemen could continue to work.
The pipelines were repaired later on and after a month of working they were subjected to be damaged again in October and till now it has created huge shortages and instability in the region to work and give out put to Yemen. This has even caused shortages on the domestic use of oil which has enraged the locals to gain energy for the protests.
