For three years now, all eyes have been on Riyadh due to its consecutive surprises. It entered a war in the beginning of the new era and decisively dealt with domestic and foreign affairs. This brave policy caused Arab and international worry. The question has thus been asked: Are we witnessing a new expansive state?
The Arab world has lived for decades with regimes led by ideas, and whose foreign and domestic policies were drawn according to a Baathist, Nasserist, leftist and nationalist approach, and some Libyan thing that is not understandable.
These regimes were tinctured with the characteristic of expansion at the expense of other states and sought to spread their ideas via military coups. They were countries whose pillars were the ideology that goes beyond their people’s aspirations and that’s based on lecturing, inventing fragile projects and wasting their people’s years and money.
Riyadh today is working according to a serious developmental approach, continuous modernization and balance between its interests and the interests of other people, whether the bond they share is that of joint fate or friendshiFares bin Hezam
The truth is that we are before a progressive state, and not an expansionist one as the former is an added value to each country that allies with it, and the latter raises suspicions of dominance over it.
