Yemeni authorities ask president to remove UAE from Arab coalition

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Yemen’s internationally recognized government has demanded that President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi expel the UAE from the four-year-old Arab coalition to help government forces fight the Hussite rebels for their support for the separatists from the South Yemen Transitional Council, Yemeni Transport Minister Saleh al-RIA Novosti reported Jabwani.

“The government in its statement yesterday gave the UAE full responsibility for what is happening (in southern Yemen – ed.) And transmitted to the president a request to terminate the UAE’s participation in the Arab coalition operating in Yemen,” al-Jarwani said.

According to him, the government is currently collecting files against the UAE in the political, humanitarian areas, as well as in the field of human rights violations, which concern violations, the creation of secret prisons, the country’s sovereignty and attempts to divide it, for submission to international organizations and courts.

He accused the authorities in Abu Dhabi of creating the Transitional Council of Southern Yemen, which advocates secession of the south of the country. “The UAE is first and foremost responsible for everything that happens,” al-Jarwani said.

In Aden, where the government of Yemen moved from Sana’a captured by the Hussites, clashes between the forces of the government of Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi and the separatists – supporters of the Transitional Council of South Yemen began on August 7.

Security Belt forces reporting to the council seized military bases in Aden, government offices, and the presidential palace. In battle, 40 people were killed, 260 were injured.

Last Thursday, under pressure from Saudi Arabia, they began to return state institutions in Aden to government control. However, on the eve, despite the agreements, the forces of the Transitional Council of South Yemen established control over the military police base of the Yemeni government in the province of Abyan in the south of the country.

According to the source of RIA Novosti, as a result of the clash six Yemeni soldiers were killed and several were injured. In addition, one civilian was the victim of the clashes.

The Hadi government, based in Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh, accuses the UAE of providing financial and military assistance to the separatists and calls on Abu Dhabi to stop it immediately.

The separatists created their own Transitional Council of South Yemen in May 2017. Their leader was the governor of the province of Aden, Idarus az-Zubeidi, who was fired shortly before by President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
