(MENAFN - Emirates News Agency (WAM))
ABU DHABI, 19th December, 2017 (WAM) -- The UAE has strongly condemned the launch of a ballistic missile by the Houthi militia targeting Riyadh on Tuesday.
It also said that this cowardly attack draws attention to the dangerous and negative role played by Iran in supporting the coup militia and its insistence on continuing its hostile practices by providing the Houthi terrorist group with ballistic missiles that threaten peace and security in the region.
In a statement, the UAE emphasised its full support for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against anyone who tries to threaten its security or harms peace and stability in its territory, while reaffirming the organic link between the security of Saudi Arabia and the security of the UAE.
In conclusion, the UAE reiterated its unwavering commitment to the Saudi-led Arab Coalition to achieve security and stability in brotherly Yemen, fully aware of the relationship between this goal and the security and stability of the region.
