CAIRO, Egypt, Arab League (AL) Secretary-General, Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, reiterated support for finding a peaceful settlement to the crisis in Yemen.
Aboul-Gheit made the remarks during his meeting with Yemeni Parliament Speaker, Sultan al-Burkani, in the Egyptian capital, on the latest developments in Yemen.
The AL chief expressed keenness on reaching a sustainable peaceful settlement to the Yemeni crisis, stressing the necessity for Yemen's Houthi group to withdraw from the ports and the city of Hodeidah, in compliance with a UN-brokered agreement reached in Stockholm in Dec, 2018.
The AL backs any effort that aims at reaching a settlement to the Yemeni crisis, Aboul-Gheit said on Wednesday.
He also urged the international community to adopt strict measures, to stop the hostile and terrorist practices of the Houthi group.
Saudi Arabia, Iran's number one regional rival, has been leading an anti-Houthi military coalition since March, 2015, in support of Hadi, seeking his reinstatement.
Meanwhile, the Houthis used ballistic missiles and drones to attack several Saudi targets.
These practices would threaten regional and international security, undermine the efforts made for reaching a political settlement to the crisis, said the AL chief.
On the other hand, also on Wednesday, the Cairo-based Arab Parliament, designated in a meeting, attended by Yemeni parliament speaker, the Houthi militia as a terrorist group.
