The Arab Gulf states unanimously condemned the statement of the Lebanese Minister of Information, George Kordahi, who considered that “Saudi Arabia and the UAE are attacking the Yemeni people, and that the Houthis are practicing self-defense.”

While the Gulf Cooperation Council expressed its condemnation of these statements, the Council called on Qardahi to “refer to the historical facts and read their sequence so that it becomes clear to him the great support provided by the Arab coalition countries led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to support the legitimacy of the Yemeni people in all fields.”

The Council called on the Lebanese state to clarify its position on these statements.

Despite Qirdahi’s clarification that he “did not intend in any way to offend Saudi Arabia or the Emirates, and that he had all the love and loyalty to their leaders and their people,” the Gulf states made one diplomatic move, as the Emirates, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait summoned the Lebanese ambassador to each of These countries, to hand him a note of protest against Qardahi’s statements (which he had made before his appointment as Minister of Information in the Lebanese government).

The UAE Foreign Ministry expressed its strong condemnation and disapproval of “these shameful and biased statements, which offended the countries of the coalition to support legitimacy in Yemen,” while the Bahraini Foreign Ministry considered that “the crimes and violations committed by the Houthi group against Yemen and its people, and its continuous attacks on Saudi Arabia, since its coup were unjust The legitimate government must refute these irresponsible statements that violate diplomatic norms, represent an intentional insult to the countries of the coalition to support legitimacy in Yemen, and ignore the principles and values ​​that govern fraternal relations between Arab countries.

In turn, the Saudi Foreign Ministry considered that “Qardahi’s statements are offensive to the efforts of the Arab coalition led by the Kingdom in Yemen in support of the internationally recognized government, and are inconsistent with the most basic political norms and inconsistent with the historical relations between the two brotherly peoples.”

The Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry considered that Qardahi’s statements “did not reflect the true reality of the current situation in Yemen, and are considered a departure from the official position of the Lebanese government, and ignoring the important pivotal role of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and the Arab coalition to support legitimacy in Yemen.”

As for Yemen, the Lebanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs handed over a protest note, expressing its “deep astonishment at these statements that harm the Yemeni-Lebanese relations.”
