Yemen | Al-Houthi: Yemen was ruled by US ambassador before revolution

Leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement said the Yemeni affairs were in the hands of the US ambassador before the revolution, adding that the country was a totally failed state under full occupation.

“The previous situation in the country made us realize that the revolution was inevitable and was in the absolute interest of the Yemeni people,” Sayed Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi said speaking on Monday marking the seventh anniversary of the Yemeni revolution led by Ansarullah movement.

He added that before the revolution, the country was run by foreigners, adding that the politicians in the country failed to seek independence.

“The people that ruled our country before the revolution caused Yemen to be subject to UN resolutions under Chapter Seven of [Security Council],” he said.

He further stressed that in the pre-revolution era, the US ambassador was ruling Yemen. “Before the revolution, political groups were under the control of the US embassy,” he said.

Sayyed Al-Houthi added that while the international community supported the former Yemeni regime, the country was facing catastrophic economic crises.

“Before the revolution, there were explosions, assassinations and takfiri elements,” the Yemeni leader underscored.

“If the pre-revolution political, economic and security situation had continued, Yemen would have collapsed and fallen apart.”

“Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are just instruments in the hands of the United States,” tal-Houthi noted, likening those two Arab states to cows that the US is milking them.
