I heartily endorse the article written in regards to Saudi-Yemeni relations. The conduct of these two nations at this time could become an inspiring template for relations between neighboring countries.

It is in a larger, richer and more powerful nation's interests for their neighbors to prosper. The entire region would benefit if the larger players took an active interest in the smaller states and their peoples.

I believe the Saudi leadership is employing advanced thinking regarding its neighbors and that it will pay long-term dividends for all involved. Hopefully, other Arabian Peninsula nations will be quick to follow the Saudi lead.
