Khamenei: Saudi Arabia and UAE seek to break up Yemen
The United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia seek to break up Yemen, which must stand firm against this conspiracy, Iran's Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said.
Khamenei met with Mohammad Abdul Salam, the spokesman for Yemen’s Ansarallah Movement, in Tehran yesterday. The group is commonly referred to as the Houthis.
Iran’s state TV reports that the country’s supreme leader is urging support for Yemen’s Houthis against a Saudi-led coalition that he says is trying to "disintegrate" the country, the AP reported.
A Saudi-led coalition that includes the UAE has been battling the Iran-aligned Houthis in northern Yemen since March 2015 on behalf of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi’s government.
