EU condemns launching of missile on Riyadh

BRUSSELS, Nov 6 (KUNA) -- The European Union condemned Monday the launching of a missile by the Houthis from Yemen targeting the Saudi capital Riyadh on Saturday as a "dangerous escalation." "The indiscriminate targeting of civilian areas is unacceptable and contrary to international law," an EU spokesperson told journalists.
The EU reiterates its previous calls on all sides involved to de-escalate, agree a sustainable ceasefire and engage in a constructive manner and in good faith in peace negotiations, said the spokesperson who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
The EU will continue to fully support the efforts of the UN Special Envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed in this regard, added the spokesperson. (end) nk.sd
