Yemen blasts UNSC resolution on Red Sea operations as ‘political game’

Tehran, IRNA - The spokesman for Yemen’s Ansarullah movement Muhammad Abdul-Salam has denounced the UN Security Council resolution against its operations in the Red Sea as a “political game”.

Abdul-Salam said early on Thursday local time that it is the United States itself that violates international law throughout the world, Yemeni media Al-Masirah reported.

The Yemeni official’s reaction came immediately after the Security Council adopted a resolution against Anarullah amid tensions in the Red Sea without addressing US support for the Zionist regime’s deadly war on Gaza as the root cause of the situation.

In another reaction, Muhammad Ali al-Houthi, a member of the Supreme Political Council of Yemen said “We call on Israel to immediately stop all attacks that disrupt the lives of the people of Gaza and undermine the rights, freedoms and peace and security of the region.”

What the Yemeni armed forces carry out is within the framework of legitimate defense, he underlined.

Resolution 2722, proposed by the United States and Japan, gained 11 votes in favor and none against. 

Four countries, namely China, Russia, Algeria and Mozambique, abstained. Russia and China did not veto the resolution.
