The Yemeni government calls on the international community to classify the Houthis as a terrorist organization

With the Houthi’s continued violations of all international laws and norms, the Yemeni government has called on the international community to classify the Houthi militia as a terrorist organization.

The government of Yemen has considered that the Houthis’ adoption of what it described as systematic attacks on infrastructure inside Yemen, neighboring countries and regional and international waters requires a firm international stand by classifying the militia as a global terrorist organization.

The Yemeni government has said it is renewing its commitment to a one-of-a-kind approach pace fair and global in compliance with agreed benchmarks at the national, regional and international levels, and to continue serious and responsible engagement with all efforts aimed at alleviating the human suffering of the Yemeni people.

For its part, the European Union has condemned the Houthi attacks on oil facilities and infrastructure, warning of their catastrophic repercussions on the humanitarian situation and maritime security.

In a statement, the Council of the European Union called on the Houthi militia to abandon positions it considered extremist and to commit in constructively with the efforts of the United Nations envoy in Yemen to renew and expand the armistice in the country.

Today the UN Security Council holds its monthly meeting on Yemen to take stock of developments in the military, political and humanitarian situation, in particular on the theme of the activation of the UN armistice, the renewal of which is still hesitant.
