The Houthi militia commented on the legitimate government’s recall of the Yemeni ambassador to Beirut, against the background of the statements of the Lebanese Minister of Information, George Qardahi, regarding the war.
The leader of the militias, Muhammad al-Houthi, said: “We tell the brothers in Lebanon that closing the embassy of the Republic of Yemen is better than accepting a mercenary ambassador, who certainly does not represent the Republic of Yemen.”
Yesterday, Tuesday, the Yemeni government announced the recall of its ambassador to Lebanon, Abdullah Al-Deais, to consult on the reprehensible statements of the Lebanese Minister of Information, George Qardahi.
A statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate Affairs said, “The Government of the Republic of Yemen, referring to the letter of protest delivered by the Ambassador of the Republic of Yemen in Beirut to the Lebanese Foreign Ministry on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 AD, regarding the reprehensible statements issued by the Lebanese Minister of Information, and the deviation of those statements from the Arab position. Supporting the just Yemeni cause in the face of a coup militia that has committed crimes and violations against the Yemeni people, it announces the recall of its ambassador in Beirut for consultations,” according to what was reported by the Yemeni News Agency (Saba).
The statement stressed that “the Yemeni government and people will continue to confront the Iranian project and its militias, and it will be nothing but a safety valve for the Arabian Peninsula and the region in general, in the face of the projects of death and destruction carried out by the Iranian regime and its tools.”
And the Lebanese Minister of Information, George Kordahi, caused a diplomatic crisis for his country with Yemen and the Gulf states after describing what is happening in Yemen as an absurd war… saying that “the Houthis are defending themselves in the face of external aggression.”
In response to a question: “Do you consider that the UAE and Saudi Arabia are attacking Yemen?” Qardahi said: “There is definitely an attack, not because they are Saudi Arabia or the UAE, but because there has been an attack that has been going on for 8 years, and what you cannot implement in two or three years, you will not be able to implement in 8 years.”
