The British ambassador to Yemen said on Tuesday that the United Kingdom and the international community are fully aware of the seriousness of the negative role of Iran in Yemen.
Simon Shercliff stressed on the need to put an end to Iran's intervention and support for Houthi militias and fighters allied to ousted President Ali Abdallah Saleh.
His statement came during a meeting with Yemeni Prime Minister Ahmed Obaid bin Dajar.
For his part, the Yemeni Prime Minister called on the international community to halt Iran’s interventions in Yemen, and stop supplying weapons to the militias to prolong the war, adding that the launch of a Houthi missile towards Riyadh airport on Friday reveals that they truly supported by Tehran.
The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen closed off the land, sea and air ports to Yemen on Sunday following the missile attack which was intercepted by Saudi air defense systems.
