France strongly condemns the January 31st missile attacks on Abu Dhabi, for which the Houthis claimed responsibility. They follow Houthi attacks on the Emirates on January 17 and 24.
These repeated attacks, which are absolutely unacceptable, threaten the UAR’s security and regional stability. France reaffirms its solidarity and support for its Emirati partner, as well as its determination to work for regional security and stability.
France calls for de-escalation in Yemen and in the region. It reiterates its call to the Houthis to immediately end their destabilizing actions in Yemen and in the region, and to work constructively within a political process under the auspices of the UN to end the crisis in Yemen.
