RIYADH — Saudi Arabia has vowed to respond firmly and forcefully to all terrorist acts carried out by the Iran-backed Houthi militia, which continuously targets civilian objects and vital installations and threatens regional and international peace and security.

The Kingdom stressed its rejection and condemnation of all aggressive terrorist attacks on its territory and the neighboring United Arab Emirates, the Saudi Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

“The Kingdom had presented many political initiatives to reach a comprehensive political solution that would bring together all Yemeni parties, but the Houthi militia continued its intransigence to carry out cowardly attacks on Saudi Arabia and the UAE, target international shipping lanes and disrupt humanitarian aid, in flagrant violation of all international laws and norms.”

Also, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said that the Houthi militia’s attacks against the Kingdom and the UAE on Monday constituted a threat to the region’s security and stability.

The attacks also confirm that this militia has become a major source of threat to regional and international security and stability, he said.

Prince Faisal added that the Kingdom and the Arab Coalition continue to support international efforts to bring peace to Yemen and that the Kingdom’s initiative to find a political solution to the Yemeni crisis is still on the table.

“At the same time, we are fully prepared and ready to deal with the Houthi intransigence, and to defend the security of the Kingdom.” he said.
