EXCLUSIVE: UN Chief Antonio Guterres affirms Saudi right to defend itself

Thursday, 21 December 2017

In an exclusive interview with Al Arabiya, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, addressed the pressing issues around the world and Middle East - especially Yemen and the recent Houthi missile attacks against Saudi Arabia.

The UN chief also commented on the Jerusalem issue, the Syrian conflict, the Saudi Vision 2030 and the anticorruption campaign in the Kingdom.

Guterres condemned the Houthi attacks against civilian targets: “…we consider first of all that providing missiles to any party of the conflict is a violation of the arms embargo and second that the use of missiles against cities is totally unacceptable.”
