The brief report chiefly spoke about Saudi Arabia’s involvement in Yemen and Syria, but also highlighted other countries such as Lebanon, Bahrain and Iraq as realms of growing Saudi interest, saying that Saudi Arabia was “prepared to take unprecedented military, financial and political risks to avoid falling behind in regional politics.”
