The so-called National Team for Foreign Outreach has organised a seminar in the capital Sana’a, under the auspices of President Mahdi al-Mashat, discussing the importance of the role played by the activists and free people of the world in exposing the crimes committed by the Saudi-led coalition against Yemen.
During the seminar, Mohammed Saleh al-Nuaimi, a member of the Supreme Political Council, stressed the importance of the role assigned to the activists and free people of the world.
Al-Nuaimi indicated to the efforts being made at the local and external levels to show the oppression of the Yemeni people and expose the crimes of aggression in international forums.
With regard to the results achieved by the National Team for Foreign Outreach, he said the team was able to “confront the Gulf petrodollar, which sought to buy positions and silence the voice of truth in various media.”
At the seminar, Deputy Prime Minister for Defence and Security Affairs, Lieutenant General Jalal al-Ruwaishan, confirmed that the Yemeni people are entering the “seventh year of steadfastness in the face of aggression with firm determination and strong will to continue the battle to restore national sovereignty.”
Al-Ruwaishan praised the efforts of the team, especially during the negotiations in Stockholm.
He stressed the readiness of the National Salvation Government to provide all support to the National Team, which strengthens its efforts to convey Yemen’s voice to all countries and organisations of the world.
For his part, the head of National Team for Foreign Outreach, Ambassador Ahmed al-Emad, touched on the role of activists abroad, both Yemenis and other free people around the world, in exposing the crimes of aggression and in conveying the true picture of the suffering of the Yemeni people as a result of the continuing aggression and blockade.
He explained that many activists and free people have been harassed, imprisoned and dismissed from universities and businesses, and some of them are still being held in prisons in their countries because of their positions in regards to Yemen, but that did not deter them from continuing their humanitarian role and standing up against the aggression that has violated international and humanitarian laws.
During the seminar, several speeches were given by a number of activists from Australia, Chile, Denmark and Great Britain, and a speech to civil society organisations was delivered by the President of the Yemeni Center for Human Rights, Ismail al-Mutawakkil.
The seminar was attended by a number of politicians, intellectuals and media professionals.
