The Saudi foreign minister expressed concern about escalating tensions in the Red Sea due to Houthi attacks and US strikes. He emphasized the need for de-escalation and protection of freedom of navigation. The Houthi attacks have disrupted trade and pose a threat to regional security. The US has been launching strikes on Houthi targets in Yemen, risking an expansion of the conflict. The situation is further complicated by the conflict between Israel and Hamas. President Biden has indicated that airstrikes will continue despite limited impact on Houthi attacks. Overall, the region is experiencing a dangerous and uncertain time.
