KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman on Monday said that the Kingdom supported a political solution in Yemen according to Security Council resolutions and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) initiative, a media report said.

Addressing the third year of the 7th session of the Shoura Council, King Salman said Saudi Arabia’s involvement was not a choice, but a duty to confront the Houthi militias.

He also spoke about relations with Iraq, stating that the Kingdom looked forward to continuing efforts to strengthen cooperation with Baghdad.

The Saudi king called on the international community to put an end to Iran's nuclear and ballistic missile programme and reiterated the Kingdom's support for a political solution in Yemen according to Security Council resolutions and the GCC initiative.

On Iran, the King said the international community needs to put an end to its activities that threaten the stability and security of the region.
He said that Iran is working to cause chaos in neighboring countries and that it insists on sponsoring terrorism.

In his speech, King Salman spoke about a number of issues, including oil, stating that the Kingdom’s policy on oil is based on cooperation and coordination with other oil producers.
“We are keen on a strategic partnership based on mutual benefits and respect,” the King said, referring to oil production.
“We are working to maintain the stability of oil markets to protect producers and consumers,” the King said.
The King also spoke about terrorism in the region, stating that the Kingdom will continue to fight extremism.

He added that the Palestinian cause will remain the number one priority “until the Palestinians get their rights.”
