In this paper, an attempt is made for identifying the type of the relationship between Saudi Arabia and Idridsi princes in Asir Province through the 1926 Mecca Agreement. The historical roots of that relationship are sought to be shown. As shown in the paper, the essence of disputes on Asir is the conflict of international and regional strategic goals in the south of Saudi Arabia and the Red Sea. The Mecca Agreement was the result of a regional conflict of power and interests. Such conflict was won by the Saudis who were quite good at managing their state and building their domestic and international alliances.
