US aides UAE’s role in Yemen with on hand , refuses it with the other hand
The UAE’s legitimacy in Yemen is the implementation of Security Council Resolution 2216, which calls for the return of the so-called legitimate government and the preservation of the unity of Yemen,” former US ambassador, Gerald Feierstein said on Twitter.
“The US diplomat pointed out that the issue of government in Yemen or secession is decided by the Yemenis themselves, not the UAE. “Any work of the UAE in Yemen outside 2216 is illegal,”, responding to the former son of Zayed’s advisor Abdulkhaliq Abdullah, who accuses the Yemeni government of betraying the coalition and corruption.
The White House administration has yet to announce a clear stance on the Aden coup and separatist control of the city, and the remarks have been left to second-class diplomats.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
