Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United Nations Abdullah al-Mouallimi told Al Arabiya on Wednesday that Saudi Arabia will confront the militias of the Lebanese Hezbollah party everywhere, and expose its practices to the international community.

Mouallimi also accused Hezbollah of seeking to shake the stability of the Arab world.

Mouallimi also stressed that Saudi Arabia seeks to liberate Hodeidah peacefully, citing the temporary halt of military operations to make room for diplomatic efforts by Griffiths to push the Houthis to withdraw peacefully.

“Up until now, it does not seem that Griffiths can achieve enough breakthroughs in the (Houthis) ranks. I think (the Houthis) are stalling and using the international mediator to prolong talks. This is something that cannot be accepted indefinitely,” Moallimi added.

Yemen’s Foreign Minister Khalid al-Yamani had sent a strong message earlier to his Lebanese counterpart Gebran Bassil, calling on the Lebanese government to curb pro-Iranian militias behavior, referring to Hezbollah’s growing support of the Houthi militias.
