Previously, we saw that Egypt supported Saudi Arabia as opposed to Turkey when Saudi Arabia promised to build a bridge over the Red Sea.
In the case of the recent summit in Kuala Lumpur, Indonesia's president and Pakistan's PM are not attending because of Saudi protests. but, Malaysia is going ahead with the summit.
My question is, why is Saudi Arabia able to assert influence on Egypt, Indonesia, and Pakistan?
Why don't Turkey, Malaysia, and Qatar need Saudi support?
