The UAE strongly condemned on Wednesday, the statements made by the Lebanese Minister of Information against the coalition to support legitimacy led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Yemen.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation expressed its strong condemnation and denunciation of these disgraceful and biased statements made by George Kordahi, Minister of Information of the Lebanon, which offended the countries of the coalition to support legitimacy in Yemen.
Kordahi, who was named minister in the government that took office in September, made some controversial comments about the Arab coalition in Yemen.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation summoned the Lebanese ambassador to the country and informed him of its protest and denunciation of these statements, which are considered polemics that contradict diplomatic norms and the history of Lebanon’s relations with the countries of the Arab coalition to support legitimacy in Yemen, and reflect Lebanon’s growing distance from its Arab brothers.
