The Sanaa government had threatened Dubai Expo 2020 through Yemeni Armed Forces spokesperson brigadier-general Yahya Saree via Twitter.
"#Expo... With us, you could lose... we advise you to change your destination???" Saree had said on Twitter.
Saree's warning comes after Yemeni Health Minister Taha Al-Mutawakkil revealed that the Saudi-led coalition of aggression committed a series of crimes during January, which brutally claimed the lives of 150 civilians and wounded 350 others.
Seven years of Saudi-led aggression on Yemen have claimed the lives of 47,000 Yemenis, the latest health ministry toll revealed.
The warnings also come after the Saudi-led coalition committed a massacre in Sanaa, Saada, and Al-Hudaydah, which claimed the lives of dozens of victims and wounded hundreds.
The head of the Yemeni delegation, Mohammad Abdulsalam, said on Twitter the member states to the coalition "make the mistake of considering security a matter exclusive to them while taking aggressive action against Yemen and imposing a blockade upon it."
The Sanaa government launched Operation Yemen Hurricane II, which targeted Saudi and Emirati soil, in response to the coalition's escalation against Yemen.
