Kuwait hascondemned in the "strongest words possible", a Houthi attack on theKingdom of Saudi Arabia's oil facilities, pledging full support for securitymeasures assumed by the Kingdom.
The remarkswere delivered in a speech by the Kuwaiti permanent UN mission's Acting Charged'Affaires Bader Al-Menaikh at a Security Council session on Yemen.
Thecontinuing Houthi group's attacks on Saudi territory represent a "clearand direct threat" to regional security and stability, he said, mentioningthis necessitates enacting relevant Security Council weapon ban resolutions.
He praisedthe "pivotal role" assumed by the UN inspectors deployed to monitorthe implementation of the Stockholm agreement, and the subsequent Houthiwithdrawal from the strategic port of Hodeidah, Al-Saleef and Ras Issa.
Despitethis, he expressed disappointment as regards the developments over theagreement, explaining that, up to this point, it has "not achieved itsintended goals". For instance, the city of Taiz , in the southwest hasremained besieged for four years now, as civilians there suffer without thesituation being resolved, he said.
He alsolamented challenges faced by the committee tasked with overseeing the prisonerswap deal.
Kuwait wenton to reiterate its praise of the UN special envoy to Yemen's efforts on thecrisis, underlining that the "ideal solution" was the completeimplementation of the three-point agreement and the ruling out of a militaryoption.
This wouldenable focusing on matters related to ending the crisis and adopting the GulfCooperation Council initiative and steps for national dialogue, he said.
