The Arab Foreign Ministers condemned all human rights violations committed by the Houthi militia, affirming the support of the Yemeni government's efforts to combat extremism and terrorism.
They pointed out that the Houthi militias provided the suitable environment for the spread of terrorist deviant organizations, condemning the Iranian support for the Houthis which undermined the efforts to return to the political process and impeded the international efforts to stop violence, terrorism and war in Yemen.
The ministers added that the Houthis are firing rockets at neighboring countries and threatening the international shipping in Bab al-Mandab Strait and the Red Sea, rejecting the allegations contained in the report of the UN Panel of Experts on Yemen issued on 28 August.
They deplored the fact that the UN Panel of Experts has assumed full responsibility for both the legitimate government in Yemen and the countries of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen on the conflict in Yemen while the report ignored the real causes of the conflict represented in the Iran-backed Houthi militias coup, the Iranian negative role and its interference which prolonged the conflict in Yemen.
The Arab Foreign Ministers called upon the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General of the United Nations to mount much pressure on the Houthi militia coupists to release prisoners, detainees, abductees, political prisoners, journalists and activists immediately and unconditionally.
The Arab ministers expressed their condemnation of planting mines by the Houthi militias in the waterway and targeting of commercial ships and oil tankers, which almost caused an environmental disaster, stressing that the security of the Red Sea is an integral part of the Arab national security.
