The Houthis must be designated a terrorist organisation, according to Yemen’s FM

In an interview with US Ambassador to Yemen Steven Fagin on Sunday, Yemen’s Foreign Affairs Minister Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak said the Houthis must be designated as a terrorist group.
Mubarak said that the Yemeni government is planning on designating the Houthis as a terrorist organization, emphasising the importance of international support for those decisions.

The meeting addressed the difficulties facing peace efforts, as well as the Houthis’ threat to international shipping and global peace and security, according to the Saudi state news agency SABA.
The report said that Mubarak warned that the Houthis sought to “brainwash society” and “impose a racist identity” instead of the national one, according to the report.

The US ambassador reaffirmed his country’s condemnation of Houthi terrorist attacks on oil facilities, emphasising the country’s support for Yemen’s security, stability, and unity.

Ambassador Mohammed bin Saeed al-Jaber of Saudi Arabia said that the Houthi assaults on oil ports, which utilise Iranian weapons, are ‘terrorist operations.’ He emphasised that harming civilian services harms Yemeni individuals’ interests.“The international community is working to support the truce, and we encourage those efforts,” the ambassador said.
