Saudi Arabia stressed on Tuesday the Kingdom’s constant support for Yemen’s stability, hoping that it will return to its Arab fold, reported the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz chaired the cabinet session at the Yammama palace in Riyadh.
The government hoped that the Yemeni people’s uprising against the terrorist sectarian Iranian-backed Houthi militias would help rid the country of their oppression, said Information Minister Dr. Awadh bin Saleh al-Awadh.
It hoped that the Yemenis will be able to preserve their country’s security, identity, unity and social fabric within an Arab, regional and international framework, he continued.
In addition, the Saudi cabinet welcomed the outcomes of the international meeting on Yemen that was held in London last week.
The gatherers stressed the Kingdom’s right to defend itself against threats that target its stability and security.
They said that the launch of ballistic missiles by the Houthis against the Kingdom is a threat to regional security that will prolong the Yemeni conflict, calling for the need to put an immediate end to these attacks by the Houthis and their allies.
Addressing the recent dispute over the possibility that US President Donald Trump may recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the Saudi cabinet expressed its constant support to the Palestinian people.
It said that the Palestinians have the right to establish their own state, whose capital is East Jerusalem.
It therefore expressed its deep concern over the reports that Trump may recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Such a move may hamper peace talks and lead to very serious consequences, warned the Saudi cabinet.
It hoped that the US would not go ahead with such a step so that it would not affect Washington’s ability to pursue a just solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
