Iran officially recognizes the Houthi government.. Legitimacy this is  violates international resolutions

Iran officially recognized the Authority of the Houthis in Sana'a, a day after the militias appointed a member of its political bureau and director of al-Masirah channel, Ibrahim Mohammed al-Dailami as ambassador and commissioner in Tehran, which the legitimate government considered a flagrant violation of international laws and customs and Security Council resolutions related to the Yemeni crisis .

Tehran's recognition came in a report published by the Iranian state agency IRNA, in which it said that the Yemeni Government, led by Ansar Allah (Houthis), appointed Al-Dailami, commissioner, ambassador and commander of Yemen’s diplomatic mission in Iran.

Earlier yesterday, the Houthi group announced the appointment of Al-Dailami as its ambassador to Tehran, and the group's spokesman, Mohammad Abdul Salam, who is currently in Iran, said the move "reinforces the official institutional work within the framework of the Supreme Political Council and the Rescue Government."

In a televised address, Abdul Malik al-Houthi called for the opening of embassies and diplomatic missions in Sana'a, stressing that the restoration of diplomatic representation between Iran and Sana'a will bring significant gains for Yemenis through more than 70 agreements that were frozen due to the former regime's eagerness not to upset Saudi Arabia.

Al-Houthi, whose group is accused of receiving financial support and obtaining missiles and drones from Iran, and implementing Tehran's agenda in Yemen and the region, claimed that their relationship with Tehran is a fraternal relationship. No dictates or orders coming from any external entity."

Violation of international resolutions

The diplomatic exchange between Iran and the Houthi group "is not surprising" to the legitimate government, according to Information Minister Muammar al-Iryani, "it transfers the relationship between the two parties from coordination and received support from under the table to the public, and confirms the validity of what we said from the beginning about this relationship and its nature and objectives."

Al-Ariani called the move "an infringement of international laws and norms and contrary to Security Council resolutions related to the Yemeni crisis."

He noted in tweets on his Twitter account that the timing of the announcement by the militias and Iran of the relationship in "the region's flare-up against the backdrop of the crisis of the hijacking of oil tankers and the security of navigation in the Strait of Hormuz" "confirms the isolation of the Tehran regime and its efforts to break it."

He stressed that the Yemeni government (internationally recognized) will take the necessary measures to "submit an official protest note to the United Nations in the face of this development, which is a flagrant violation of international laws and norms," calling on the international community to take a firm stand against the continuation of Iranian interventions in Yemen and Its policies which destabilize security and stability."

A natural result.

While the minister linked the recognition of the disturbing situation and the signs of war rising in the Strait of Hormuz, Yemeni activists and experts considered it a natural result of the coup of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council in Aden, and the weakness of the legitimate government due to the support of the Arab coalition for Armed formations which have undermined its powers over the past years.

Mohammed Abdul Salam, director of the Aba'ad Center for Studies and Research, said that "Iran's recognition of the Houthi state is a natural consequence of the Aden coup and an expected result of the Arab alliance weakening the legitimacy of the Yemeni state and a normal result of the UAE's support for separatist and terrorist tendencies in liberated areas."

Aden last week was the scene of clashes between government forces and military and security formations set up and funded by the UAE, and the council belongs to Southern Transitional Council, an entity that includes former officials of Hadi's government, formed under the auspices of the UAE in 2017 with the aim of achieving the secession of southern Yemen.

The clashes led to the tightening of the military grip on Aden by the UAE loyalists, and the control of all state institutions and camps, including The Palace of Al-Ma’ashiq, and the government considered it a military coup d'etat for which the UAE is responsible, accusing Abu Dhabi of diverting the operations of the Saudi-led coalition, and demanding the latter by pressuring the coup d'état and re-establishing its (partial) control over Aden.

The advisor to the Minister of Information and former Secretary of the Yemeni Presidency, Mokhtar Al-Rahbi, considered the appointment of an ambassador to the Houthis in Iran "The first consequences of the transitional rebellion in Aden noting that the conflict in the liberated areas has given "safety to the Houthis and the introduction of liberated areas in conflicts far from our Common goals."

Iranian media had earlier revealed a tripartite meeting held at the Iranian Foreign Ministry, which included alongside Iranian officials the ambassadors of France, Britain, Germany and Italy, and the delegation of the Houthi group, which arrived about two weeks ago Tehran, with a message from the leader of the militias, announcing allegiance to Ali Khamenei.
