Bangladesh has strongly condemned the Houthi militias’ attack with explosive-laden drones on Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates resulting in explosion of petroleum tankers and fire in the Musaffah ICAD 3 area near Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) causing damage to civil property as well as loss of lives.
This is a repeat terrorist attack following the hijack on a UAE-flagged cargo ship called Rawabi off the coast of Al Hudayah Governorate on January 2, 2022. This latest attack is an escalation of aggression on the part of the Houthi militias adding to further tension in the region.
“Bangladesh also believes that such insensible and illegal acts are targeting civilians and civilian facilities and are a flagrant violation of international law and norms of civilized behavior.”
Bangladesh called upon the Houthi militias to refrain from repetition of such unlawful activities and deliberate escalation of tension since such irresponsible activities may aggravate tension in the region.
Bangladesh expresseed its firm solidarity with the United Arab Emirates and its brotherly people against any threat to its safety and security, reads the statement. “Bangladesh also remains steadfastly committed towards all efforts for maintenance of peace and stability in the region.”
