Asmara, 31 March 2015 – In a press statement it issued today, the Eritrean Foreign Ministry dismissed as baseless a fabricated report, quoting certain Yemeni heads, alleging Iranian support to Houthi through Eritrea.
In the 11-point press statement, the Ministry underscored that the Government of Eritrea has been monitoring such repeated and groundless allegations claiming at one time that ‘there exist Israeli bases in Eritrea’ and at another ‘Iranian bases’.
Noting these unethical and unprofessional acts on the part of certain media outlets, the Ministry’s press statement denounced the practice. It further elaborated Eritrea’s stance regarding developments in Yemen.
Full text of the Foreign Ministry’s statement would appear in tomorrow’s national media coverage.
