Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia: Foreign Secretary statement

The Foreign Secretary yesterday (23 June 2020) condemned an attack on Riyadh, Saudi Arabia by the Houthis.

The Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab yesterday condemned the Houthis’ drone and ballistic missile attacks on Saudi Arabia, urging the Houthis to prove they are serious about peace.

I condemn these latest attacks on Saudi Arabia by the Houthis, and their continued offensives within Yemen which cast further doubt on their claims to want peace.

The Yemeni Government and Southern Transitional Council chose to put the Yemeni people first by agreeing a ceasefire yesterday.

With over a million Yemenis believed to have contracted Coronavirus, it is more vital than ever that the Houthis cease their hostilities and allow the UN-led humanitarian response to get on with saving Yemeni lives.
