Russia Calls for Urgent Crisis Meeting.

Trending Now

The Putin regime is demanding an immediate meeting with the UN Security Council.

The reason is last night's attacks on Yemen by the USA and the United Kingdom.

Russia is one of several countries reacting to the assaults, which targeted a large number of locations in, among others, the capital Sanaa.

Now, Russia is summoning the UN to immediately discuss the military attacks, as reported by Sky News.

Strongly Condemns

Iran has also spoken out after last night's assault. The country strongly condemns the attacks and believes that the USA and the United Kingdom are violating Yemen's sovereignty.

"These attacks are a clear violation of Yemen's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and a breach of international laws," says the spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Nassar Kannani, according to Sky News, which refers to the channel Nour News.

He adds:

"These attacks will only contribute to insecurity and instability in the region."

"Tragedy and Massacre"

The militant group Hezbollah from Lebanon, which has had confrontations with Israel on several occasions in recent months, also condemns the action.

"The American aggression once again confirms that the USA is a full partner in the tragedies and massacres committed by the Zionist enemy in Gaza and the region," expresses the group in a statement.

Saudi Arabia has also expressed concern over the escalation. The country has the longest coastline on the Red Sea of all nations.

"The Kingdom calls for restraint," urges Saudi Arabia, according to CNN.

Ten Countries Support

Meanwhile, ten countries are backing the military action in Yemen. Of these, six are directly involved in the assault.

Apart from the USA and the United Kingdom, Australia, Bahrain, Canada, and the Netherlands are participating with military forces.

Denmark, Germany, New Zealand, and South Korea have expressed their support.

"Our aim remains to reduce tensions and restore stability in the Red Sea, but let our message be clear: we will not hesitate to defend lives and protect the free flow of trade in one of the world's most critical waterways in the face of ongoing threats," the ten countries emphasize in a joint statement.
