Yemen's Houthis imposed war on Arab coalition: Saudi FM Al-Jubeir

  • Efforts to promote Saudi-UAE ties at ‘unprecedented’ level praised
  • In June 2018, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan chaired the first meeting of the council

JEDDAH: The Arab coalition supporting Yemen’s internationally recognized government did not want the war in that country, said the Saudi minister of state for foreign affairs.
The coalition’s priority is Yemen’s security and stability, and the war was imposed on it by the Houthi coup, said Adel Al-Jubeir, who is also a Cabinet member.
During a visit to the UAE, he toured the Emirates Diplomatic Academy, where he met with its staff and students, and was briefed on the programs taught there.
Al-Jubeir praised Saudi and Emirati efforts to ensure the success of Sweden’s consultations between Yemeni parties and the resulting agreement reached. He said he looks forward to its implementation.
He described Saudi-Emirati ties as strong and unique, and stressed both sides’ efforts to promote their relations to an unprecedented level, especially as the Saudi-Emirati Coordination Council is working to enhance ties in various fields.
In June 2018, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan chaired the first meeting of the council.
The council seeks to develop a joint vision to deepen bilateral relations in line with the objectives set by the GCC to strengthen economic integration between the two sides and develop innovative solutions for optimum use of resources.
Earlier, KSRelief General Supervisor Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, said that humanitarian aspect of the Yemeni conflict is the top priority of Saudi Arabia and other members of the Arab coalition.
