Saudi Arabia welcomes the UN Security Council’s inclusion of Houthi leaders in the sanctions list


Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomed the UN Security Council’s inclusion of three leaders of the Iranian-backed Yemeni Houthi group in the sanctions list, “because of their direct threat to peace, security and stability in Yemen.”

The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs, according to what was reported by the official news agency “SPA”, expressed its “aspiration that this listing would contribute to putting an end to the actions of the terrorist Houthi militia and its supporters,” saying that “this listing will neutralize the danger of these militias, and stop supplying this terrorist organization with missiles and aircraft without pilots, specific weapons, and money to finance its war effort to target civilians and economic facilities in the Kingdom, spill the blood of the Yemeni people, and threaten international shipping and neighboring countries.

The Foreign Ministry reiterated, “The Kingdom’s continued support for Yemen and its legitimate government, and support for all international and security efforts to reach a comprehensive political solution to end the Yemeni crisis and alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people.”

In the same context, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, in a statement, welcomed the same step, calling on “the international community to work hard to support peace and end the Yemeni crisis.”
