Saudi Arabia: Statement by the Spokesperson on the latest Houthi attacks

EEAS Press Team

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was yet again targeted by several drones on Friday. The European Union strongly condemns the attacks in Jeddah and other places, claimed by the Houthi movement from Yemen. Attacks against cities and civilian infrastructure are unacceptable and must stop.

These latest hostilities increase the risk of further escalation of the Yemen conflict and undermines ongoing efforts to end the war.

The EU reiterates its call on all sides to participate in the Yemeni-Yemeni talks, starting on Tuesday, 29 March, in Riyadh under the auspices of the Gulf Cooperation Council. The EU recalls its full support to the efforts of UN Special Envoy Hans Grundberg.
