Saudi Arabia condemns storming of presidential palace in Yemen

Saudi authorities said they condemn in the strongest terms the actions of protesters who stormed the presidential place in Yemen on Tuesday, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

A group of demonstrators broke into Al-Maashiq Palace in Aden amid anger about the economic situation in the country. They dispersed peacefully a short time later.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reiterated the Kingdom’s support for the Yemeni government, which has been operating from temporary capital Aden since December, led by Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik Saeed.

It also stressed the importance of ensuring the government is given a proper chance to serve the Yemeni people during the difficult humanitarian and economic situation in the country.

The Kingdom also called on both parties to the Riyadh Agreement to act swiftly and meet in Riyadh to complete the implementation of the remaining points of the peace deal.

It said that implementation of the agreement would unite the Yemeni people, end the bloodshed and begin the process of healing the rift between factions in the nation.

The agreement also supports the restoration of the Yemeni state and its security and stability, along with efforts to reach a comprehensive political solution to the crisis, the authorities added.
