Saudi Arabia called on the Security Council to pressure Iran to abide by UN resolutions for a comprehensive political solution in Yemen.
Addressing the Security Council on the situation in the Middle East, the Kingdom’s Permanent Representative to UN Ambassador Abdullah Al-Mouallimi said any political solution in Yemen must guarantee the sovereignty of the state, unity of armed forces, the commitment to the Gulf initiative, the national dialogue and relevant Security Council resolutions.
He said Saudi Arabia will continue to support the Yemeni people, their legitimate leadership and respond to humanitarian needs.
Mouallimi said that the Iranian-backed Houthis are not interested in peace as was confirmed by the attack on Al-Anad Military Base in Yemen by an Iranian made unmanned aircraft.
