Speaking at the Abu Dhabi Strategic Debate on Sunday, the UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr. Anwar Gargash described Iranian-made missiles fired from Yemen at the Saudi capital earlier this month as a “dangerous escalation.”
Gargash said that the UAE will not stand idle amid the rising threats. He also stressed that the UAE will continue to stand with the Saudi-led Arab coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen.
The minister noted that the emergence of a new Hezbollah in Yemen, now among Houthi militia, cannot be ignored.
He added that Arab countries have an opportunity to cooperate with the international community in order to put an end to Iran’s threats militarily and ideologically, just as they did before when they cooperated and fought against ISIS.
