Referring to the abusive statements issued by the Lebanese Minister of Information regarding the efforts of the coalition to support legitimacy in Yemen led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs regrets the abuses contained in these statements towards the Kingdom and the countries of the coalition to Support legitimacy in Yemen, which represents a clear bias of the Houthi terrorist militia that threatens the security and stability of the region.

The Ministry reaffirm that these statements are contrary to the most essential political customs and are inconsistent with the historical relations between the two brotherly peoples.

Given the possible consequences of these abusive statements on relations between the two countries, today the Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned the Ambassador of the Lebanese Republic to Saudi Arabia and delivered an official protest warrant in this regard.
