Yemeni President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi said today, Wednesday, that the Houthi group does not want peace and is working to implement Iran’s agenda to destabilize the security and stability of Yemen, the region and international navigation.
This came during President Hadi’s meeting with the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General of the United Nations to Yemen Martin Griffiths, in the presence of his deputy, Lt. Gen. Ali Mohsen Saleh, according to the official Sabaa news agency.
Hadi added, “The last of the militia’s aggressive approach was targeting the civilian airport in Aden, the government and civilians in a treacherous and cowardly act of terror that confirms the behavior and approach of the criminal militias and the enemies of life and peace.
He pointed out that Iran’s flagrant interference in the Yemeni affairs and its field support for the actions of the Houthis through the actions of its so-called ambassador in Sana’a, his activities and his presence violate diplomatic and international norms and laws.
He expressed his appreciation and gratitude to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, for his efforts to “achieve the peace that the Yemeni people aspire to and which unfortunately corresponds to the persistence and arrogance of the Houthis.”
For his part, the UN envoy condemned the criminal terrorist act that targeted the government during its arrival in the temporary capital, Aden, whose perpetrators aim primarily to undermine the peace, security and stability that Yemen and its legitimate leadership aspire to with the support of the region and the international community.
