Arab League chief says Houthi militias are threat to Arab security

Secretary General of the Arab League Ahmed Aboul-Gheit said that the putschist Houthi militias are still determined to hold to their coup, relying on their allies in Tehran for support.

In his opening speech to the 150th Session of the Council of Arab Foreign Ministers held at the headquarters of the Arab League in Cairo on Tuesday, Aboul-Gheit said the putschist militia rejects any compromises and refrained from attending the talks called for by the UN envoy in Geneva a few days ago, invoking baseless arguments.

The secretary general stressed that the Houthi militias bear responsibility for the suffering of the Yemeni people. He also underlined that these militias pose a serious threat to Arab security, especially in the Red Sea region, calling for their continued confrontation.

Aboul-Gheit noted that the Houthi militias and gangs exploit the chaos to survive and seek to prolong the conflict as they cannot stay alive without the continuation of the chaos of arms and the absence of power and public order. These opportunists, he said, bear the largest share of the Yemeni people's suffering.
