ALGIERS- Algeria on Friday has condemned the attack that targeted a Saudi oil tanker in the Red Sea on Thursday, considering it as a “serious violation” of the international maritime law and the free navigation rights,
said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement.
“Algeria condemns the attack perpetrated Thursday 26 July against a Saudi oil tanker in the Red Sea. It is a serious violation of the international maritime law and the free navigation rights as it would affect international trade,” said the Ministry’s statement.
“This attack is all the more condemnable as it was perpetrated at a time when the United Nations’ special representative has been striving to relaunch the resolution process of the conflict shaking the country (Yemen) and which has caused unspeakable suffering to civilian populations,” added the Ministry.
“Algeria reiterates its solidarity with the people of Yemen and reaffirms its full support to the UN efforts for the political resolution of the crisis in that sister country,” concluded the Foreign Ministry’s statement.
