Kuwait's Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomed the UNSC’s statement, in which it unanimously condemned the attack by the terrorist Houthi militia on civilian facilities in the UAE, considering it a dangerous escalation that would affect the region’s peace and security.
The statement of the Council reaffirms the seriousness of the Houthi militias' behaviour, threatening peace and security in the region, the Ministry said in a press release carried by Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).
It also shows the importance the Council attaches to the Yemeni cause, the Ministry noted, urging the Council to double effort to force the Houthi militias into responding positively to the ceasefire calls and the UN envoy's efforts to resume political consultations among the Yemeni parties.
A political solution to the Yemeni crisis should be consistent with the three reference points, namely the GCC initiative and its executive mechanisms, the outcomes of the national dialogue conference and the UNSC Resolution 2216, it stressed.
The Ministry renewed Kuwait's support to all efforts by the international community aiming to reach a political settlement to the crisis.

In a statement carried by Bahrain News Agency (BNA), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed that the unanimous UN Security Council's condemnation of the terrorist Houthi attack reflects the international support for the legal right of the UAE to defend its sovereignty and protect its security, stability, and the safety of its citizens and residents against the criminal Houthi militia’s acts and its continued violations of international laws.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs called on the international community to take a firm and decisive stance against the terrorist Houthi militia and its attacks and criminal acts, as well as to work to reach a ceasefire and a political solution to the Yemeni crisis in accordance with the Gulf Cooperation Council’s Initiative and its Executive Mechanisms, the outcomes of the Comprehensive National Dialogue Conference, in addition to the Security Council Resolution No. 2216 and relevant UNSC resolutions regarding the Yemeni crisis.
