The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has condemned in the strongest possible terms the occupation of the UAE embassy in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, by the Houthi group, yesterday.

In a statement, it called for the evacuation of the embassy immediately and restore it to the embassy staff, adding that the UAE retains the right to bring perpetrators of this attack to justice and accountability.

"This act is a further evidence that the group which committed this attack does not show any regard or respect for international conventions and diplomatic norms, as it practises jungle law," the statement said.

The MoFA stressed that the occupation of the embassy and the evacuation of embassy staff will not deter the UAE's support for the restoration of stability to sisterly Yemen.

"This criminal act is a flagrant violation of international law, the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961 relating to the immunities enjoyed by foreign embassies, and United Nations General Assembly resolution 121/69, on taking effective measures to enhance the protection, security and safety of diplomatic and consular missions, diplomatic and consular representatives, adopted at the General Assembly in December 2014.
