US official: Riyadh and Abu Dhabi confront Iran’s expansion in Yemen
:: Vice president of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US armed forces Jack Keane has lauded both Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed for confronting the Iranian expansion in Yemen and the Arab region.
“Thanks to each of the young leaders, Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, for standing against the strategy of the Iranian regime in Yemen,” Keen said in the annual general conference of the Iranian resistance in Paris.
“The Iranian regime strategy is based on getting US forces out of the region, and control of the region… Iran is moving steadily towards regional dominance, and we must stop it,” he added.
“We are meeting as people who respect freedom because of one reason, only for Iran to be free,” he said.
Keen pointed out that the Iranian regime persuaded Russia to intervene in Syria, highlighting that the first job of Iran in Syria is killing, noting that its militias destroyed about 72 percent of hospitals in the Syrian provinces, which was bombed out of its control since 2015.
