Antonio Guterres

UN chief condemns attacks on Saudi airport

UNITED NATIONS, May 23, 2019

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has expressed concern over reports of a second Houthi drone targeted an airport in Najran, Saudi Arabia, a UN spokesperson said.
 
"The Secretary-General is alarmed by reports of a second consecutive drone attack on an airport in Najran, for which the Houthis have claimed responsibility. He condemns these attacks, as well as any attack targeting civilians and civilian infrastructure, which violate international humanitarian law," the spokesperson said.
 
Guterres called on all parties to the conflict in Yemen to remain calm, avoid further escalation of the tensions and engage in constructive negotiations with UN Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths to achieve the implementation of the Stockholm Agreement.
