UAE summons Iran's diplomat   

Gulf Today - 03 February, 2017

Dr Abdul Rahim Al Awadi, Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation for Legal Affairs, has summoned the Charge d'Affaires of the Iranian Embassy in Abu Dhabi, handing him a note of protest on Iran’s illegal provision of weapons to the coup militia against the legitimacy in Yemen.

Awadi said that Iran’s move is in violation of UN Security Council Resolutions prohibiting this, adding that it is considered an attack on international legitimacy, the rule of Yemen, and fuels the conflict there.

He noted that the UN Security Council Resolution No.2216 on Yemen is clear in this respect, so accordingly, the Iranian weapons and unmanned aircraft which the Arab coalition forces targeted recently, are a clear violation of the relevant international resolutions.

Saudi soldier killed

Meanwhile, a security spokesman for the Saudi Interior Ministry has said that a border outpost in the Jazan region came under heavy fire from Houthi elements inside Yemeni territory on Wednesday.

According to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), the exchange of gunfire resulted in the killing of Saudi Border Guard, Corporal Mohammed Musa Hassan Maher.

The spokesman added that the Saudi army kept the situation under control with support from ground forces.

Separately, a statement from the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said that Egypt has strongly condemned the vicious attack on the Saudi naval forces frigate in the Red Sea, adding that it represents a continuation of a policy of destabilisation in the region.

The ministry said that it is following the repercussions of the incident, which occurred west of the port of Hodeida, with great interest and concern, stressing that the attack represents a threat to deliveries of humanitarian aid and relief materials to Yemen, as well as a threat to the security of navigation in the Red Sea.
