This event has been postponed until further notice.
On the other side, coordination and cooperation have intensified between the Houthis and Iran, especially given the high tensions between Tehran and Riyadh. Still, Yemen’s war has not just changed the political situation, it has also changed the country’s geography. Yemen’s land and sea borders are the scene of keen rivalries between different parties to the conflict. The conflict has left its mark on the governorate of Mahra in the east and the archipelago of Socotra in the south, as well as on the maritime routes of the Red Sea. These different areas have turned from geographical backwaters into key centers of dispute between regional powers, ushering in a new stage to the ever-complex conflict.
The Carnegie Middle East Center invites you to a panel discussion on the geopolitical implications of regional involvement in Yemen and other issues surrounding the country’s conflict on Monday, March 9 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. at the Hilton Beirut Downtown hotel. The event will be held in Arabic with simultaneous translation to English.
