Abu Dhabi Crown Prince receives Yemeni tribal chiefs
The crown prince affirmed the coalition’s determination to continue its support to the legitimate government in Yemen
Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan on Monday received the leaders of Yemen's Marib tribes.
The Yemeni delegtion was headed by Marib Governor Sultan bin Ali Al Arrada and accompanied by Brigadier Mussalam Al Rashedi, Commander of Marib Liberation Force
The crown prince, who is also the Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, said that the people of Yemen “are capable of facing all challenges and re-building their state on a purely Yemeni and Arab foundation,” according to official Emirati news agency WAM.
He added that the Saudi-led Arab coalition, which the UAE is part of and has been fighting Houthi militias in Yemen since March, has “contributed significantly in helping Yemen regain its sovereignty, under a vision that serves the aspirations of the Yemeni people for stability and development.”
The crown prince affirmed the coalition’s determination to continue its support to the legitimate government in Yemen, headed by President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi.
"At the same time," he continued, "we support political solutions and implementation of relevant international resolutions when genuine intentions and tangible steps are taken by the militias to end their rebellion."
