Statement by the Deputy Foreign Minister

Arab Coalition in support of the legitimate Govt of Yemen came at the invitation of H.E. President Hadi, for intervention after exhausting all means based on int’l law & UN Charter to protect the Republic from the Iran-backed Houthis. What happened in Aden & Yemen’s state institutions is a coup against the legitimate Govt resulting from the UAE-backed STCSouthArabiaThis contradicts the main objective for which the Arab Coalition was called upon to do. Govt of Yemen holds the STCSouthArabia and the United Arab Emirates fully responsible for the coup perpetrated against the state in Aden.The Govt of Yemen calls on the United Arab Emirates to immediately cease its material & military support to any rebel groups working against the State.
