Abu Dhabi, June 23, 2020, SPA -- The United Arab Emirates has condemned the Iranian-backed Houthi terrorist militia's attempts to target civilian areas in Najran and Jazan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with explosives-laden drones and ballistic missiles intercepted by Coalition forces.
In a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation today, the UAE reiterated its full solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against all threats to civilians, affirming its support for all measures taken by Saudi authorities to maintain the country's security and stability.
The Ministry also affirmed that the security of the UAE and that of Saudi Arabia are indivisible, and any threat facing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is considered a threat to the security and stability of the UAE.
The Ministry added that the continuation of such attacks demonstrates the danger the Houthi coup poses to the region and further illustrates this militia's aim to undermine regional security and stability.
