The work of the extraordinary session of the Council of the Arab League began on Sunday in Cairo, at the level of the permanent delegates at the request of the United Arab Emirates, to examine the question of the terrorist attacks carried out by the Houthi militias against civilian installations in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Morocco is represented at this meeting by the Kingdom’s Ambassador to Egypt and its Permanent Representative to the Arab League, Ahmed Tazi.
On this occasion, the Minister of State of the United Arab Emirates, Khalifa Shaheen Almarar, stressed that the Houthis’ persistent threat to the national security of the Gulf States poses a threat to Arab national security, warning that indifference and the procrastination of the international community to take a clear position against this militia gives it greater leeway to continue committing its crimes against the countries of the region and the Yemeni people.
The UAE had aborted a larger terrorist operation thanks to its armed forces intercepting a ballistic missile, he added, noting that this escalation was part of the Houthi militia’s plan to spread terrorism and chaos in the region, which also threatens international peace and security.
He also argued that the Houthi terror group could not have continued its aggressions without the continuous flow of weapons and support from Iran, which always refrains from playing a positive role in ending Houthi practices.
For his part, Abdul Rahman Bin Saeed Al-Jumah, Representative of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, said that the systematic attacks carried out by the Houthi militias, supported by Iran, against civilian areas and vital installations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, not only target the national capabilities of the Gulf Arab states, but also to destabilize the region and threaten international peace and security, as well as the global economy, energy security and maritime navigation. .
He also underlined that these repeated attacks by the Houthis against civilian installations constitute, moreover, war crimes for which the perpetrators must be held accountable.
In view of the contempt of these militias for all international and humanitarian laws and their rejection of all international and regional peace efforts and initiatives aimed at resolving the political and humanitarian crisis facing the Yemeni people, the international community must take a stand firm against the Houthi terrorist militia and its supporters, he insisted.
Al-Jumah also stressed the need to exert political pressure to compel this militia to cease its hostile actions against the Yemeni people and the countries of the region.
