Iran To Halt Weapons Supplies To Houthis In Yemen After Agreement With Saudi Arabia - Report

Iran has agreed to cease covert weapons supplies to the Houthis (Ansar Allah) in Yemen as a part of the recent China-brokered agreement with Saudi Arabia, The Wall Street Journal reported on March 16.

Last week, Saudi Arabia and Iran announced that they reached an agreement to re-establish diplomatic relations after extensive talks in Beijing.

Saudi Arabia has been leading a military coalition against the Houthis, who are allied to Iran, for nearly eight years. The group attacked the Kingdom using precision-guided missiles and suicide drones which were allegedly supplied by Iran on countless occasions during the conflict.

U.S. and Saudi officials told The Wall Street Journal that if Iran stops arming the Houthis, it could put pressure on the group to come to a deal to end the conflict in Yemen

Iran’s approach to the conflict in Yemen will be a “litmus test” for the success of the agreement with Saudi Arabia, on American official said.

The United Nations Yemen mediator Hans Grundberg urged the warring parties on March 15 to “seize the opportunity” to take decisive steps toward peace. The mediator said that momentum to end the conflict had been renewed by the Iranian-Saudi agreement.

“The parties must seize the opportunity presented by this regional and international momentum to take decisive steps towards a more peaceful future,” Grundberg told the 15-member Security Council.

After the release of The Wall Street Journal report, a Saudi official told Al-Arabiya TV that the kingdom’s territory “will not be used for any military operation against Iran in the future.” The official also confirmed the Iranian decision to halt weapons supplies for the Houthis.

The Iranian-Saudi agreement will apparently have a positive impact on the situation in Yemen. Coordinated pressure from Tehran and Riyadh could effectively bring the conflict there to an end. This would be a major achievement to both countries.

WSJ goes to hell, I don’t trust a single word from these mmm…. I don’t have polite words to describe them, because I’ve read them for years and now these bastards well.


Please add all of the mainstream Western media to your list.


Done!) At least biggest ones with the most notorious authors and their branches like “russian” liberal outlets “Medusa”, “Rain” and so on. They are one and the same with western colleges. Liberals from “Gazprom media” payed money to russophobe radio station “Echo of Moskva” for many years. After the start of SMO all these bastards were marked as foreign agents for taking money from abroad, but this is not a barrier to stop their activity, they are free to go on, though all mentioned stations are closed or moved behind the border, but many still here. It’s like a giant octopus, liberopus, hard to cut all hands in one time. It has nothing common with fight against freedom of speech, because branches of state own holdings translate articles of foreign press to russian language and share it for free. + some volunteer internet forums do the same. I have been reading it for years almost every day, but stopped when realized they are publishing one and the same — the darkest lies about opponent countries.

Correcting mistakes: know, not “now”.

But it was Our Will to favour those who were oppressed in the land, making them models ˹of faith˺ as well as successors; The Leader of Iran will never abandon Yemen, MBS is the aggressor in the Region MBS is realizing that financing all the unjust Wars in the Region is not Sustainable. Justice will prevail


Are Saudi supposed to stop stealing Yemeni oil ? If not, how exactly is the conflict supposed to end ?

And the USadmin said blah de blah. As if they had anything to do with negotiations. The USadmin is hardly relevant these days.

US banks are crashing. Their war ‘effort’ is crashing. The dollar is next now the petrodollar is done. The Saudi’s are off and it’s thanks for all the fish.

I don’t think that’s true.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
