It was Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the acting ruler of the United Arab Emirates … have suggested to Mohammed bin Salman to carry out an “internal revolution,” which would cause Saleh to change course and join the Arab coalition …
Saleh … gave four conditions: removing his name from the list of international sanctions; the promise of a political position in the new Yemen; that he and his family would remain safe; and financial demands.”
