The United States of America has warned of the repercussions of the Houthi attack on Marib, stressing that its continuation will lead to an escalation throughout Yemen.
Yesterday, Saturday, the US State Department’s Office of Near Eastern Affairs said that the Houthi attack on Ma’rib is leading to an escalation throughout Yemen.
He pointed out that the US envoy to Yemen, Tim Lenderking, met with the President of the International Committee of the Red Cross, Peter Maurer, to discuss the urgent need to stop the fighting and provide assistance to those in need, stressing that the work of the International Red Cross is “extremely important.”
Today, Sunday, Yemeni Foreign Minister Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak said, in his speech, during his participation in the regional security conference in the Bahraini capital, Manama, that: “The repercussions of the fall of Marib will mark the end of the political and peace process in Yemen and the efforts being made to restore security and stability.”
Bin Mubarak added: “Marib has become a national and strategic depth, as it is the impenetrable dam for Yemen and the Arab nation, and has become among the strategic priorities of the Iranian regime and its tools in the region.” The project has entered a new phase of conflict, violence and chaos.”
The Minister of Foreign Affairs stressed: “The consequences of the Houthi takeover of Ma’rib will not be as bad as the impact of the demolition of its historically famous dam, and chaos, internal strife and waves of migration will spread.” “Dealing with the war in Yemen as a regional proxy war is a misconception that should be corrected,” he added.
