Arab coalition spokesman Ahmed Asiri says Iran is the reason behind terrorism and instability in the Middle East.

During a seminar organized by the Saudi embassy in Norway, Asiri called on Iran to admit that it supports and funds the Lebanese Party Hezbollah and acknowledge that by establishing Shiite militias in Yemen - the Houthi militia - it’s attempting to create a model that resembles Hezbollah on the southern borders of Saudi Arabia.

He added that the international community was aware that Hezbollah was one of the most dangerous terrorist groups in the region, as it smuggles weapons and drugs across the world to fund its activity in Lebanon and Syria.

Asiri added that the coalition’s countries would stand by the Yemeni people until Yemen restored stability and legitimacy.
