Yemen's Foreign Minister said the Houthi militia and their Iranian backers aim to capture the whole Arabian Peninsula, not just Yemen.
In an interview with Al-Arabiya TV channel, Ahmed bin Mubarak, said: "The Houthi project, and the Iranian one behind it, aim to capture the Arabian Peninsula not just Yemen."
He said that Iran had advised the Houthi militants "no to negotiate" with the Yemeni government before they capture Marib city which is still impregnable to them.
He expressed his surprise at the US administration's reversal of the militia's short-lived terror designation early this year despite not forcing them to offer any concession, for example to exchange prisoners with the government.
