Sanaa — Yemen’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday condemned Iran’s interference into Yemen’s internal matters by training, arming, and funding the dangerous Houthi militia.

“We call on the International Community to step in and put more pressure on Iran so that it stops practicing its destructive policies in the region,” FM said.

Yemen’s FM indicated that The International Community needs to exist to the UN Resolution “2216” which prohibits countries from giving any kind of support to the coup militia, the Houthi group.

Houthi insurgency in Yemen started in June 2004 until June 2015 when the president of Yemen, Abdurrabu Hadi’s palace was attacked, and he called his political allies to intervene in order to protect the sovereign of the Yemeni people.
