MISSILE AND DRONE ATTACKS LAUNCHED BY THE HOUTHI MILITIA TOWARDS THE KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA

MISSILE AND DRONE ATTACKS LAUNCHED BY THE HOUTHI MILITIA TOWARDS THE KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA

 

 

Malaysia is appalled by the ballistic missile and drone attacks launched by the Houthi Militia these past few weeks. Malaysia condemns in the strongest possible terms these heinous acts of aggression.These constant provocations by the Houthis are counter-productive towards peace and stability in Yemen.

 

Further acts of aggression will only exacerbate the situation in Yemen. In line with Malaysia's support for the United Nations Secretary General's appeal on 23 March 2020 for a global ceasefire amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Malaysia urges all parties in Yemen to immediately end these provocations. In collaboration with our cross regional partners, Malaysia has initiated the statement in support to the Secretary General’s appeal with the support of over 170 United Nations Member States, Non-Member Observer State and Observer on 23 June 2020.

 

Malaysia continues to call on all parties to work constructively towards a political settlement for lasting peace in Yemen.
