Indonesia Condemns Missile Attack Against Saudi Arabia

The Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday (11/11) condemned last week's missile attack against Saudi Arabia, saying the act was a threat to regional stability. The ministry said in a statement that Indonesia condemns all actions that violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries.  The missile attack on Nov. 4, which targeted the territory of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, was a threat to stability, peace and security in the region an beyond. A ballistic missile Burqan H2 fired from Yemen came close to the Saudi capital, Riyadh, and was intercepted by the Saudi military. Yemen's Houthi separatist group reportedly said its forces targeted Riyadh, but a US Air Force official said on Friday the missile was made in Iran. Houthis are believed to be supported by the Iranian government. Indonesia said it is necessary to start a peace process involving all parties entangled in Yemen's political and humanitarian crisis. The ministry also said that Indonesia calls on all parties in Yemen to put aside differences and sit together for an inclusive peace process. Tensions between Saudi Arabia and Yemen's Houthis over the last two and a half years have killed 10,000 people in thousands of Saudi-led air strikes. (Jakarta Globe)
