Yemen says Iran should stop arming Houthis


Yemen has called on Iran to stop supporting the Houthi militia and stick to the principles of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

In his speech at the 46th Ministerial Conference of the OIC in Abu Dhabi, Foreign Minister Khalid Al-Yamani urged Iran to stop funding the militia and to providing the group with weapons.

He also added that the Iranian regime must stop destabilizing the region by supporting armed groups, and respect the principles of international law.

Moreover, Yamani said the Houthis were stalling the implementation of the Stockholm agreement and refused to withdraw from Hodeidah in order to open a humanitarian corridor, which hindered the work of the United Nations.

“The legitimate government does not recognize the attitude of failure to implement the agreements made in Sweden because failure will bring us back to the battleground in Hodeidah and will undermine the momentum created by the Stockholm agreement, and the international support to resolve the Yemeni crisis will be lost,” Al-Yamani said.
