Yemen - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (06.11.17)

Q - Do you believe that Iran is behind the firing of a ballistic missile at Riyadh by Houthi rebels, as the American president claimed yesterday?

A - As Jean-Yves Le Drian said yesterday, “France condemns in the strongest possible terms the firing of a ballistic missile at Riyadh from Yemen for which Houthi rebels claimed credit. This latest attack on Saudi territory deliberately targeted a civilian area and once again illustrates the danger that ballistic missile proliferation represents for the entire region. France stands by Saudi Arabia and reaffirms its full support for the Kingdom’s security in the face of the threats it is facing.”
