Saudi wants 10% renewable energy in six years

Maj. Gen Asiri attends a seminar in Paris France on Friday

Saudi Black Hawk helicopter crashed during military operations in Yemen on Tuesday, killing 12 officers, Saudi news agency SPA reported.

Commenting on the number of the Egyptian forces participating in the Arab coalition, Asiri said "the Egyptian army now cooperates in the naval and air efforts, but were considering sending between 30,000 and 40,000 Egyptian soldiers as ground troops". But now that the Donald Trump national security team views Yemen as a possible battleground to dent Iran's regional ambitions, talks are underway on how the USA might provide greater intelligence, and also play a role in capturing the strategic port of Hodeidah from the rebels. "It did not happen for several reasons: First, there would have been a large deployment of ground forces, which would have resulted in a large number of civilian and military casualties".

Saudi Arabian Oil Co., which generates 6 gigawatts of electricity per year, is interested in participating in the second round of bidding for renewable projects, Abdulaziz Al-Judaimi, senior vice president, said at the conference. "We are like a technical team in a hostage situation", he added.

Al-Shehri also blamed the worldwide community for not fulfilling its duties by implementing UN Security Council resolution 2216, which calls for a peaceful settlement based on the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) initiative and the outcome of Yemeni national dialogue, and requests that the Houthis hand over their weapons to the legitimate government.

Valentina Matviyenko also said that the Federation Council would promote the removal of barriers for development of business contacts between Russia and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has led a coalition battling Iran-backed Houthi rebels in its impoverished southern neighbor for the past two years.

Russia Blocks US-Drafted UN Statement Condemning North Korea Tests
From China's standpoint, a peaceful solution means not only sanctions but a return to talks between the US and North Korea. Next week, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will chair a minister-level meeting on the North Korean issue at the UN.

The emergence of Iranians in Yemen came about through Tehran's "support of Houthi militias with funding and weaponry in the six wars [that former President Ali Abdullah Saleh fought against them since 2004 until his overthrow in June 2011]".

Yemen has been wracked by chaos since late 2014, when Houthi rebels and their allies overran the capital, Sanaa, and other parts of the country.

Multiple rounds of U.N-brokered peace talks have failed to bridge the gap between the warring parties in Yemen.

At the end of a year ago, the Saudi government calculated that the cost of completing all these projects would come in at $370 billion (1.4 trillion riyals).
