Saudi Arabia's UN envoy welcomes report on Iran, calls for strict action
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 01 - 07 - 2020

NEW YORK — Permanent Representative of Saudi Arabia to the United Nations, Abdullah Bin Yahya Al-Muallami, welcomed the United Nations Secretary-General report's findings on Iran's involvement in several attacks against the Kingdom last year.
In a statement, Al-Muallami said that Saudi Arabia has constantly warned of the security consequences of the arms agreements that have ignored Iran's regional expansion and ignored the legitimate security concerns of countries in the region, adding that it is good to see international partners now realizing long-term concerns about the hateful agenda of regional expansion of Iran.
He clarified that, since the Coalition to Support legitimacy in Yemen started its mission according to Security Council Resolution 2216, member states of the coalition, along with other friendly countries, have intercepted Iranian arms shipments that were destined for the Houthi militia in Yemen. The coalition found that there are similarities between weapons provided by Iran with its terrorist militias in Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon, and those supplied to the Houthi militia in Yemen, he added.
Ambassador Al-Muallami pointed out that since the beginning of the war in Yemen, the Houthi militia launched 1,659 attacks on civilians in Saudi Arabia, in addition to 318 Iranian-made ballistic missiles and 371 drones against the cities and villages of Saudi Arabia, as well as 64 explosive boats to prevent free shipping in Bab Al-Mandab and the Red Sea.
He pointed out that, moreover, in the face of repeated attacks, Saudi Arabia exercised the utmost restraint, even in cases where the source of those attacks was clear, such as those that were launched on Abqaiq and Khurais and came from the north, not the south.
Al-Muallami stressed that Saudi Arabia is working closely with international partners to mobilize international allies in an attempt to end this threat that Iran poses to the international community, calling for an extension of the arms embargo on Iran.
