RIYADH — Yemeni people are “more than ever united” over restoring peace in their country and pushing out Iranian influence from Yemen following the advancement of Yemeni army forces on multiple fronts, Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the US Prince Khaled Bin Salman said on Tuesday.

In a series of tweets, the ambassador added that the tribe leaders of Saada called for the continuation of efforts to liberate the Houthi-controlled governorate.

This comes following Saada tribe elders issuing a statement on Monday that came during a press conference held by the Spokesman of Coalition Forces Col. Turki Al-Maliki at the Armed Forces Club in Riyadh.

Maliki said that the Saada tribal leaders called on their government and the coalition to continue their efforts in liberating their province.

The ambassador continued by saying that this was a “significant development” and is evidence of the effectiveness of continued pressure on the Houthis.

“KSA will continue to lead the Coalition’s efforts toward achieving a political solution based on UNSC Res 2216 which explicitly calls for the Houthis to disarm, evacuate urban areas and recognize the legitimate Yemeni government,” Prince Khaled Bin Salman said. — Al Arabiya English
