Saudi Arabia convicts Putin of hypocrisy

The scandal took place at the summit of the Arab League. There was read Putin's appeal to the States of the anti-Houthi coalition. In particular, the Russian leader urged the Arabs to resolve the Yemeni conflict without external interference, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to Reuters.

The representative of Saudi Arabia Saud al-Faisal says that Moscow tells about the tragedy in Syria, while supplying weapons to the Syrian regime to deal with its people at the same time.

Arabic Minister expressed hope that Putin would change his strategy.

It should be recalled that on March 26, Putin supported the immediate cessation of hostilities in Yemen, where the Middle Eastern Coalition, led by Saudi Arabia was conducting a special operation. As it is known, Saudi Arabia has launched a military operation against the Houthi rebels, who control much of Yemen. On the part of the Saudis, the operation involves 150 thousand soldiers and 100 military aircraft. Other countries send weapons to Yemen too: United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Jordan, Morocco, and Sudan. The willingness to participate in the ground military operation was expressed by Egypt, Jordan, Sudan, Pakistan, and Turkey.
