The United Arab Emirates’ minister of state for foreign affairs on Monday welcomed the United States’ move to designate Iran-backed Houthi militia in Yemen as a foreign terrorist organization.
“We welcome the US administration’s decision to classify the Houthi militia as a terrorist organization, and to place its leaders on terrorist lists,” Anwar Gargash said in a tweet.
The United States will designate the Iran-backed Houthi militia as a terrorist organization, and three of its leaders as Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGTs), US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in an official statement on Monday.
Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the move is in line with the Yemeni government’s efforts to “put an end to the violations of the Iran-backed militia and the real dangers it poses, which has led to the deterioration of the humanitarian situation of the Yemeni people, and the ongoing threats to the international peace and security.”
