Meanwhile, Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubair told the Russian broadcaster RT that the Saudi-led coalition would go ahead with its military operations against the Huthis. He made the comments after UN-brokered peace talks failed.
“The Kingdom and its allies are committed to defending legitimacy in Yemen and stopping the militia allied with Iran and the [Lebanese] Hezbollah from controlling Yemen,” al-Jubair said. (RT, 20 June)
