US Secretary of State: Houthi attacks in the Red Sea affect the interests of more than 40 countries

American Secretary of State Antony Blinken decided to once again visit the countries of the Middle East in the new year. The main purpose of the visit is obviously the situation around Gaza and the Red Sea.

Blinken has already visited several countries in the region, including Qatar. At a meeting with Qatari Prime Minister Mohammed bin Abdel-Rahman Al Thani, the US Secretary of State noted the seriousness of the situation that arose with shipping in the Red Sea due to the actions of the Yemeni Houthis.



These (Houthi) attacks directly affected the interests of more than 40 countries and disrupted almost 20% of global maritime traffic

Blinken said.

According to the secretary of state, the Houthi attacks are increasing delivery times for many goods, increasing their costs, which consumers around the world will have to pay.
Blinken added that the United States, along with more than 20 countries, has launched an operation to ensure the safety of shipping in the Red Sea.

The American Secretary of State also noted during a meeting with the Prime Minister of Qatar that the conflict around the Gaza Strip could expand and Washington is doing everything to prevent this from happening. In simple terms, Blinken is asking neighboring countries not to interfere and to let Israel calmly deal with Hamas.

    They are throwing the hegemon all over the place, all that remains is to express concern and concern, and even say “the whole world is in our dreams” while they flee from yet another country.

        The Houthis affect the interests of 40 countries, and the existence of the United States does not allow the whole world to live in peace. Wars, economic crises... Well, what are we going to do about this, what specific proposals does Blinkin have? Destroy the Houthis? So America then went there for the same reasons. Does he agree with this thesis?

      Well, during the 40 years that Moses led God’s chosen ones through the deserts, they settled in 40 countries. Now these countries are suffering. feel Or rather, gesheft in these countries is suffering. Yes

      Doesn’t Russia suffer from this “mess”? How does Russian oil get to India? At the top they were trumpeting that deliveries had increased significantly. I don’t believe that they are sailing from the North (Northern Sea Route), it’s expensive and expensive.

        Look at the map, the Baltic, the Japanese Chinese Sea, the Indian Ocean, quiet. Where is Suets stopping us here, and in general the Houthis are slowing down those who support Israel, the rest calmly sail wherever they want. Oh yes, there is still a pipeline with oil in the EU, it’s definitely an increase in insurance for shipowners and sailing around Africa across the crane!)))

          I know the map perfectly well! It’s just that the Baltic (and the Black Sea) had access to the Indian Ocean, etc., precisely through Suez. I think transporting oil to India around Africa is a disgrace. It’s easier for them to buy in the Persian Gulf. To compete they need give oil for three kopecks. No. hi

              I repent ...
              The explosion actually happened a few days ago and not at all on ships with weapons, but on fishing boats in the village of Salkh. This was announced (https://twitter.com/IranObserver0/status/1744105828737507340) by Governor Mohammad Hosseini of Qeshm Island, where the village is located. Iranian media also confirm (https://ifpnews.com/fire-barges-iran-qeshm-island/) information about this incident.

              The original source of the fake was a post on the social network X, and then it was picked up by some sources and replicated against the backdrop of interest in the actions of the Yemeni Houthis, who took control of shipping in the Red Sea.

    Maritime logistics chains through Suez are the shortest. As I understand it, the Houthis are attacking Maersk container ships. If we do not put things in order in terms of navigation in this water area, then only the Cape of Good Hope remains with constant storms and the Panama Canal, which has become shallow and therefore “unpassable” due to El Niño.

      We don’t give a damn about the shipping problems of the anti-Yemen coalition. Many don’t have any problems at all. In the Suez Canal, so offhand. The tanker SKF Baikal. The famous bulk carrier Gingo (PRC) goes through the canal to Murmansk for iron ore pellets. The Chinese container ship from Cosco is approaching Suez from South.

        Definitely. That's what they fought for and ran into. The coalition is still defiantly flowing around. laughing

    Our logistics company works with them. The unloading port is Novorossiysk. If it’s around Africa, then there’s no point in pushing the cargo into the Black Sea, you can cut to St. Petersburg, the shoulder is the same.

    The United States, along with more than 20 countries, has launched an operation to ensure the safety of shipping in the Red Sea.
    It has long been known how such operations by the United States and its allies end - the emergence of a new armed conflict. Blinken in Qatar hinting not to interfere in Israel’s actions is already ridiculous. Qatar is a key financial backer and ally of the Palestinian militant organization Hamas. This is the same as asking the United States today not to interfere in the conflict in Ukraine.

    How are they (the UWB) still afraid to fight THEMSELVES? Everything would be in someone else’s hands, but we say we’ll throw some cut paper at them. They wander around all the neighbors trying to persuade them, and no one is particularly afraid of them. Ours only behave very responsibly. They should at least remember about the streams that they built and built with manic tenacity, and which exploded in a matter of hours. Will there be an answer or what?

    It seems that the Houthis are beginning to see the light:
    Moscow. January 8. INTERFAX.RU - Ships passing through the Bab el-Mandeb Strait into the Red Sea should declare no ties to Israel if they want to avoid attacks, the Times of Israel reported on Sunday, citing a member of the Houthi Supreme Political Council, Muhammad Ali al- Husi.

    It looks like we are on the verge of a major uprising against the omnipotence of the hegemon. He is already being openly challenged.

    We have the opportunity to respond to the Stars and Stripes, punishing him for the ships of the Black Sea Fleet sunk and damaged by NATO missiles. God Himself ordered to take advantage of this!

    Supply the Houthis with anti-ship missiles, who are firing against NATO and US ships and 40 other countries that have grunted.

    We remember the cruiser "Moskva" and our lost sailors...
