Saudi Arabia welcomed on Monday the United States' decision to designate Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen as terrorists, as it continues to lead a military coalition supporting the government against them.

"The foreign ministry welcomes the American administration's decision to designate the Houthi militia as a terrorist organisation," reported the official Saudi Press Agency.

"It is in line with the legitimate Yemen government's calls to put an end to the activities of the militia supported by Iran."
