Prime Minister: Before September 21 Revolution, Yemen was led by foreign powers

Prime Minister of Yemen, Dr. Abdulaziz bin Habtoor, has said that “before the September 21 Revolution, many state officials got their daily tasks assigned to them by foreign embassies.”

He told Almasirah on the sixth anniversary of the September 21 Revolution that “the September 21 Revolution is a Yemeni popular revolution for all the Yemeni people, and reality has proven the falsehood of the aggression’s claims that the September 21 Revolution is a sectarian revolution. Today there are equal opportunities for all citizens.”

He pointed out that some of the teams participating in the National Dialogue in 2013 were managed from outside the hall where the meeting took place, and were directly affiliated with foreign embassies.

Prime Minister Bin Habtoor, revealed that the leaders of the parties to the dialogue were meeting in the house of then President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, but they were not allowed to meet without the presence of Islah Party leader Ali Mohsen Al-Ahmar, Hamid Al-Ahmar, or the US ambassador.

Bin Habtoor said, “I refused the aggression’s request to lead what they called the “resistance” in Aden, and all those who carried weapons at the time were from either al-Qaeda or Daesh.”

“The presence of Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi benefits Saudi Arabia and the Emirates, as he agrees with everything they want, and is silent about the presence of Zionist military personnel in Mayon and Socotra.”

“The announcement of the aggression on Yemen from the Us indicates that it is a US aggression, and the agents in the region are absolutely implementing its agenda.” he said.

He added, “2,000 days of steadfastness in the face of aggression is a milestone and victory for Yemen at all levels”. He  pointed out that the Popular Committees formed a tributary role for the Yemeni army in facing the aggression, and steadfastness for 2,000 days is an asset to be added to the Honourable Yemeni history in facing invaders.
