BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi claimed that Iran was the main obstacle towards a resolution to the ongoing conflict in his country, in an address to the UN General Assembly in New York City on Wednesday.
“Iran carries out blatant interventions in Yemen. It finances the Houthi militia, it provides it with weapons, missiles, equipment and experts,” Hadi stated.
In this regard the Yemeni leader called on the international community to put pressure on Tehran “in order to compel it to abide to international resolutions and to peace efforts.”
President Mansour Hadi also thanked Saudi Arabia saying that it had “played a leading role in mitigating our humanitarian suffering in Yemen.”
