Arab League condemns Iran for handing Yemen embassy to Houthis

Aboul Gheit

The Arab League has slammed Iran for handing over the state’s Yemeni embassy to the Houthi militia, news reports said on Wednesday.

In remarks, the Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit condemned Iran’s step considering it a flagrant violation of diplomatic norms and of the United Nations Charter, the Vienna Convention, and the relevant Security Council resolutions.

He added that the move reflects an Iranian insistence to destabilize Yemen’s conditions, and threaten the security of its neighbouring countries.
