Yemen’s Ousted Gov’t Cuts Ties

Yemen’s Ousted Gov’t Cuts Ties

The Saudi-backed ousted Yemeni government of president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi has decided to sever diplomatic relations with Iran, state media reported. State news agency Saba, citing an unidentified person at the Yemeni presidency, said Yemen “has taken the decision to expel the Iranian ambassador to Yemen, withdraw the Yemeni envoy to Tehran and close down its diplomatic mission in Iran.”  The source told Saba that the move was a protest against Iran’s alleged “interference in the internal affairs of Yemen and violation of its national sovereignty,” citing a recent detention of an Iranian ship allegedly loaded with weapons. Saudi-led coalition forces, which have been battling the Houthis for the past six months to try to restore Hadi to power, claimed on Wednesday they had seized an Iranian fishing boat loaded with weapons intended for the Houthis.
