Aden, Oct. 02, 2019, SPA -- Yemen's Information Minister Muammar Al-Iryani said that the statements made by the Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Bagheri to a Chinese channel is an explicit acknowledgment and official recognition of Tehran's military support for Houthi terrorist militias.

"Iranian support for Houthi militia is not limited to military and intelligence consultations, as the Iranian regime controls Houthis' political and military decision and manages the militia to carry out its agenda and provides it with ballistic missiles, drones, weapons, experts in military industries, mines and explosive devices", he said.

Al-Iryani called on the international community, especially the UN and the permanent members of the Security Council, to shoulder their responsibility in pressuring the Iranian regime to lift its hand from Yemen and stop all forms of support for the Houthi militia and its use of this militia as a tool to target the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and implement its sabotage agenda and threaten international shipping lines.
