ADEN - SABA
Yemen’s Information Minister said the international community’s six year leniency with Houthis “worked up their appetite” for terrorism.
In a statement to Saba, Muammar al-Eryani said the international approach of leniency and restraint from “designating them as terrorists did not stop the bloodshed not the exacerbating humanitarian crisis.”
Al-Erani said the “current US administration is aware of the detains of the [Yemeni] crisis since the events of 2011, the course of the GCC Initiative, the UN-supervised National Dialogue Conference (NDC) and how the Houthi militia abandoned the conference’s outcomes with Iranian supervision and planning.”
“Overthrowing the state and the national consensus represented by the NDC Outcomes led Yemen into a devastating war that turned hundreds of thousands of civilians to victims … brought Yemen decades to the back and caused the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world.”
Al-Eryani called on the international community topped by the P5 members to back the efforts of designating the Houtthis as a terrorist organization.
