British Prime Minister David Cameron has offered UK’s political backing to Saudi Arabia over its invasion of Yemen.
Cameron expressed support for the attacks during a phone conversation with the country’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud on Friday.
“The prime minister emphasized the UK’s firm political support for the Saudi action in Yemen, noting that it was right to do everything possible… to support [Yemen’s fugitive] president [Abd Rabbuh Mansour] Hadi,” a spokeswoman for Cameron’s office said following the call.
Cameron stressed that “Britain will do all it can to support the Saudis,” the spokesman noted, adding that the monarch welcomed the offer.
Saudi warplanes carried out the first airstrikes on Yemen on Thursday, with the aircraft bombarding the capital, Sana’a, the northwestern city of Sa’ada, and Ta’izz in the southwest.
Over 50 people have been killed and dozens more injured across Yemen in the relentless airstrikes.
