Alsahwa Net- Saudi Arabia welcomed on Saturday efforts by the US administration on blacklisting the Houthis as a terror group.
“It would be "entirely appropriate" for the US to designate the Iran-aligned Houthi movement in Yemen as a foreign terrorist group,” Saudi Foreign Minister, Faysal Bin Farhan Al-Saud said.
"We all know much of their weapons and a significant part of their ideology comes from Iran. So, they are certainly a foreign-backed terrorist organization," he said.
“I’m confident that a Biden administration would continue to pursue policies that are in the interest of regional stability,” Al-Saud said in a quote published by Reuters News Agency.
“Any discussions we will have with the future administration will lead to strong cooperation,” he added.
Yemen’s minister of information, Muamar Al-Eryani, said on the same day that designation of the Houthis as a terror group is a must to resolve Yemen’s crisis.
