UAE frustration over al-Sisi

A secret document prepared for Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan reveals that the United Arab Emirates is losing faith in the ability of Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to serve the Gulf state’s interests in Egypt, reports Middle East Eye.

In the report David Hearst describes a document, prepared by one of Bin Zayed’s team and dated 12 October, that contains two key quotes which describe the frustration bin Zayed feels about al-Sisi, whose military coup the Crown Prince bankrolled, pouring in billions of dollars along with Saudi Arabia.

It says: “This guy needs to know that I am not an ATM machine.” Further on, it also reveals the political price the Emiratis will exact if they continue to fund Egypt.

    I don´t think Putin of Russia will do what he said. that he will crushed the ISIS. They are not rich enough to spend so much money for Syria. They also have poor countrymen to support in Russia. It is useless boast of he will do that.
    That is the reason why he seek France support.
