Iraq Op­poses Saudi-Led Air Strikes in Ye­men

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS BAR -

Iraq's For­eign Min­is­ter on Thurs­day de­clared its coun­try's op­po­si­tion to the Saudi-led air strikes in Ye­men, say­ing mil­i­tary in­ter­ven­tion is not a good so­lu­tion.

Ibrahim al-Jaa­fari said he sup­ported a "peace­ful" ap­proach to Ye­meni cri­sis.

"We are not with the strikes, and we are against for­eign in­ter­ven­tion," he told AFP ahead of an Arab for­eign min­is­ters' meet­ing in the Egyptian re­sort of Sharm el-Sheikh on Satur­day.

"I don't think mil­i­tary so­lu­tions can re­solve the con­flict. We sup­port peace­ful so­lu­tions," he said.

Saudi Ara­bia along with other Gulf States launched, late Wed­nes­day, a mil­i­tary of­fen­sive against Houthis in Ye­men.
