The King of Saudi Arabia added that they “follow with great concern the policies of the Iranian regime”, including the “establishment and support of sectarian and armed militias, the systematic deployment of their military capabilities in the countries of the region and their lack of cooperation with the international community regarding the nuclear program.”
“We are also following up on the Iranian regime’s support for the Houthi terrorist militia, which is extending the war in Yemen, exacerbating the humanitarian crisis there and threatening the security of the kingdom and the region,” said bin Abdulaziz.
The Saudi king stressed that the kingdom is interested in “the security and stability of Yemen and the region” and that they are working to “alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people.” In this sense, he stressed that they seek “to pressure all parties to accept political solutions,” according to Sky News.
