Pakistan slams Houthi missile attack against Saudi Arabia

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday condemned Monday’s ballistic missile attack by Houthi rebels in Yemen on the Saudi city of Khamis Mushait.
“The timely interception by Saudi Air Defense saved the civilian populated city from grave consequences,” Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
“Such attacks targeting the unarmed civilian population are a violation of international law and condemnable,” the ministry added, denouncing “repeated” Houthi missile attacks on Saudi territory. “These attacks pose a threat to the security of the Kingdom and the Holy Places.”
Pakistan reiterated its solidarity with the Saudi government and people, and renewed its commitment to support the Kingdom’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and to protect its holy sites.

British PM May: 'I will not break up my country for EU Brexit deal'

LONDON: British Prime Minister Theresa May told the European Union on Friday that it should come up with an alternative to her Brexit proposals and warned she would never accept a break-up of the United Kingdom.
"I will not overturn the result of the referendum nor will I break up my country," May told broadcasters in Downing Street. "We need serious engagement on resolving the two main problems in the negotiations and we stand ready."
Making a statement a day after EU leaders rejected key parts of her Brexit proposals, May said negotiations were at an impasse.
She also said the best outcome from the negotiations was for the country to leave the bloc with a deal but exiting with no deal would be better than a bad deal.
