Al-Shumou newspaper political editor writes about prospects of changes expected to occur in the region and their impact on Yemen.

He says there are data under developing pointing out the possibility that the Gulf region would use strongly dangerous variables in case of demise of the king of Saudi Arabia Fahd Bin Abdulaziz. The writer sees there are prospects of occurrence of some double consequences that would overshadow the region if the king departed in such a critical period and were to be added to consequences of the occupation of Iraq.

It is especially so if we concede that departure of King Fahd may create new consequences inside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia itself and those cold affect the Yemeni reality that is haunted by certain suspicious activities.

Here he cites the quartet of the four ambassadors of Iran, Iraq, America and Britain who altogether move on the national arena in an integrated echelon through which they try to draw up features of a coming variable and formation of its spectra.
