The Lebanon-Gulf Crisis is further unfolding with Yemen now joining the Arab Gulf states in taking a stance against Lebanon.
The Yemeni Foreign Ministry expressed in a statement his country’s outrage at the statements made by the Lebanese Minister of Information, George Kordahi, and further said that it has summoned the Yemeni ambassador in Lebanon, Abdullah Al-Deais.
According to the ministry’s statement, the summon is to “consult about the reprehensible statements of the Lebanese Minister of Information,” describing it as “a deviation from the Arab position in support of the just Yemeni cause in the face of a coup militia.”
The current Yemeni government is supported by the Arab Coalition, which is led by both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Saudi Arabia subsequently banned all Lebanese imports in response to Kordahi’s stance regarding the Yemeni war, which he described as a “futile war” and the Saudi-Emirati intervention as “an act of external aggression.”
