Morocco’s Unified Socialist Party has called for the country’s withdrawal from the Saudi-led military coalition that has been fighting Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi militias.

The party added in the concluding statement of its fourth congress, held in Rabat, that Morocco should not get involved in any such military interventions.

These steps could tarnish Morocco’s reputation and standing, according to the party’s statement.
