#OIC | Iran affirms that the Houthis are not a terrorist group, just separatist
[By Jennifer Neves]
The discussion on the 4th session of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), once again, was about the rebel groups bombing Yemen; Iran keep protecting the Houthis. According to the delegate representing the country, they are just a separatist group supported by civilians.
"They both [civilians and the Houthis] are against the corruption in Yemen". He adds still, the real terrorists are the United Emirates "You are intimidating the hoothies, but in a worse way, because you have a huge better technology".
Nigeria, just as Iran, don't think that the Houthis is a terrorist group. The delegate representing Nigeria thinks that it is plausible to have a dialogue with them.
The United Emirates, in other hand, highlighted the threat coming from the United States of America, by the fact these rebels may be financed by the USA. The United Emirates thinks they must strongly combat this groups. "We can't underestimate the United States", affirms the delegate representing United Emirates
