Supreme Political Council denies Yemen’s representation in council of states bordering Red Sea

SANAA, Jan. 15 (YPA) – The Supreme Political Council in its Wednesday meeting chaired by President Mahdi al-Mashat confirmed its rejection of claim that Yemen has representation in the so-called the council of Arab and African states bordering the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden.

The Supreme Political Council considered this council as one of the aggression coalition tools to besiege the Yemeni people with a new international legitimacy, after its failure and the disclosure of its pretexts for the aggression against Yemen in front of local and international public opinion.

The Political Council affirmed its keenness on the security of navigation in the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden and the Strait of Bab al-Mandab, calling for not being drawn into such entities aimed at creating more division and fragmentation of Arab and Islamic positions.

In its meeting, the Supreme Political Council condemned the assassination crime committed by the United States of America against the martyr Qassem Soleimani and his companion Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.
The Council reiterated its rejection of the US policy aimed at weakening and tearing the region and controlling its wealth and potentials.

It called for confronting American arrogance, as it does not target a country or axis, but rather all the free people in the world who reject American domination.
