Prince Khalid bin Salman: Saudi Arabia views Yemen truce ‘positively’

  • Prince Khalid accused Iran of exploiting the situation in Yemen
  • He also said that Iran evades responsibility for its “terrorist attacks”

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia said that it views the truce announced by Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi militia positively and called on “all Yemenis” to stand against Iranian interference in the country.
“The truce announced in Yemen is perceived positively by the Kingdom, as this is what it has always sought, and hopes it will be implemented effectively,” Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Defense Minister Prince Khalid bin Salman wrote on Twitter.
Prince Khalid also accused Iran of exploiting the situation in Yemen and “evading responsibility for their terrorist acts.”
He also accused Iran of using Yemen “to further its own interests” and said Yemenis should “stand up along with us” against Iran.
The Houthis claimed responsibility for attacks on Sept. 14 against two key Saudi Aramco oil installations in Abqaiq and Khurais.
Riyadh and Washington, however, blamed Iran for the attacks, a charge denied by Tehran.

Faces of Saudi: Dr. Basmah Al-Rowaily

Many choose to become doctors from a very young age, however, this was not the case for me. During high school I excelled academically, which led my father to pressure me into choosing to pursue medicine. I studied to become a family physician, later focusing on regenerative medicine and anti-ageing medicine, including aesthetics — all of which have aided me in providing a holistic and personalized approach for my patients. Not only do I believe in such medicinal practices as a means toward achieving better health, I also believe in the natural healing power of the universe.
