The war in Yemen has led to terrible war devastation and starvation of the population. There has been a new clash of rival regional powers - the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Islamic Republic of Iran. Disagreements between Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have also deepened. Can the superpowers find a solution to the war in Yemen, along with domestic actors and regional powers? The question is will the war in Yemen have a winner at all? Can Saudi Arabia and Iran find a solution to the war in Yemen?
These important questions will be discussed by our guests:
- Dr. Jožef Kunič, former Slovene Ambassador to Iran and France, honorable president of Slovene Association for International Relations (SDMO),
- Prof. Dr. Esad Prohić, former Croatia Ambassador to Iran,
- Bakhatyar Aljaf, director of IFIMES,
