Switzerland | Yemeni Journalist: Saudi Arabia does not want an independent regime around it


Yemeni journalist Najib al-Ashmouri said that Saudi Arabia does not want an independent regime around it, pointing out that dialogue between Yemenis would have achieved results if it wasn't for the intervention of Saudi Arabia.

Speaking at a seminar on human rights in the Gulf at the UN headquarters in Geneva, al-Ashmouri said that "if dialogue was left for the Yemenis, they would have reached a solution, but Saudi Arabia does not want an independent regime near by."

He explained that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates targeted civilian sites during their war on Yemen.

As for the Aramco oil field strikes, he asked how the world should denounce this and condone the killing of tens of thousands of Yemenis by the Saudi coalition bombs since 2015?
