More Details on the visit of Saudi Spook Bandar to Moscow
and discussions with Putin
Reproduced below is a report from As-Safir (Lebanon) on website Al -monitor with more details about the visit
of Saudi intelligence czar Prince Bandar to Moscow during which he first held a meeting with the Russian
intelligence chief and then had a four hour long session with President Vladimir Putin .The details have
apparently been leaked by Russian sources to remove any doubts about the Russian stand on issues in Middle
East specially Syria which is of vital concern to Moscow in its strategic calculus vis a vis USA, even though
the latter is in decline, of which the visit itself is an indicator. Influence of Saudi money and of other Gulf
monarchies is on ascent in the region , while tiny Qatar has piped down.
Muslim Brotherhood ( MB) was created , financed and assisted by UK to counter nationalist parties and
movements in Egypt and oppose Gama Abdul Nasser .Given shelter in Saudi Arabia and other GCC states ,
MB organized cells in these countries and hence GCC's vehement opposition to MB.
I had briefly covered the visit earlier
Putin was not taken in by the monkey tricks and monetary bribes and other offers by Prince Bandar and stood
firm on his current policy on Syria , also touching on good relations with the Military regime in Cairo and excellent
bilateral relations with Turkey.
