Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister expressed deep concern about the escalating tensions in the Red Sea due to Houthi attacks and U.S. strikes on Houthi targets, fearing a further escalation of the conflict in the region.

The attacks have disrupted trade and raised alarm among major powers.

The minister emphasized the importance of de-escalation and protecting both freedom of navigation and regional security.

“I mean, of course, we are very worried. I mean, you know, we are in a very difficult and dangerous time in the region, and that’s why we are calling for de-escalation,” Prince Faisal bin Farhan said.

“We of course, believe very much in the freedom of navigation. And that’s something that needs to be protected.”

“But we also need to protect the security and stability of the region. So we are very focused on de-escalating the situation as much as possible,” he said.

The Houthi attacks are in solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza, while the U.S. airstrikes continue despite President Biden’s acknowledgment that they may not stop the Houthi attacks.

The situation risks expanding the conflict beyond Gaza, where a significant number of casualties have occurred.
