Yemeni Shura Council concerns UAE colonial plans in Socotra

Speaker of the Shura Council if Yemen, Mohammed Hussain Al-Aidarous, had on Saturday warned against the UAE’s colonial practices on the Yemeni island of Socotra.

This came during the regular meeting of the Shura Council’s main committee, which was devoted to reviewing the letter of President of the Supreme Political Council Mahdi al-Mashat, regarding the call for the Parliament and the Shura Council to hold a joint session to discuss the situations in the occupied southern provinces.

At the meeting, Al-Aidarous indicated that “the Saudi-Emirati occupation implements a dangerous colonial agenda that requires all national forces to unify positions and efforts to expel the new invaders.”

He referred to the previous report of the Council’s political committee, which warned at the time against the occupation’s passing of a project to tear apart the southern and eastern provinces through mercenaries and tools of Saudi-led aggression coalition.

In this regard, the Shura Council’s Speaker warned against the UAE’s attempts to enforce Emirati citizenship on the people of Socotra, bringing about demographic changes, and establishing Israeli military bases there.
