CAIRO, 28th February, 2016 (WAM) — Speaker of the Arab Parliament Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Jarwan has expressed his astonishment about the European Parliament’s resolution, calling for an embargo on arms sales to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

In a statement, Al Jarwan today denounced the issuance of such resolution without accurate information based on unsubstantiated allegations that Saudi Arabia had killed civilians in Yemen.

He also stressed that the public know that the Arab and Islamic intervention in Yemen followed the legitimate Yemeni government’s request, along with President of Yemen Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, to deal with Al Houthi terrorists who toppled the legitimate government, and terrorised and killed the people of Yemen with impunity.
