News that, KSA refused to support Saleh, during a meeting with Foreign Mnister Al-Qirbi, who is also Canadian. Note: Yemen Analyst says Yemen President Saleh was steadfast in saying he won't leave and sending tanks to guard the presidential palace because he hoped Saudi Arabia would come to Yemen's aid like with Bahrain. 
Context: However, there has been bad blood with Saudi Arabia over a decades fight over defining the Yemen-Saudi border, Yemen's support of Iraq in the Iraq-Kuwait war, Saudis not supporting Yemen's quest to join the Gulf cooperation council, Saudis building intelligence units on Yemeni border and a myriad of other issues that make their relations with Saleh more icy than Bahrain.
