Russia and China strike deal with Houthis to ensure ship safety: Bloomberg

In World


Negotiations between Chinese and Russian diplomats and their Houthi counterparts reportedly took place in the Sultanate of Oman, Bloomberg reported.

Earlier this year, a Houthi delegation visited Moscow for talks with Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The parties discussed measures to pressure Israel and the US to bring an end to the conflict in Gaza in which tens of thousands of Palestinians have been killed.

Houthi rebels have repeatedly attacked vessels in the Red Sea since November, imperiling one of the world’s most important shipping lanes. They claim to target only ships linked to Israel, as the group supports the Palestinians in the ongoing conflict in Gaza. The attacks have led to trade and supply disruptions to Western countries.

The United States and the United Kingdom have carried out several rounds of airstrikes against the Houthis in response.
