Yemeni Foreign Minister condemns "false screams" of Emirati UN representative

Yemeni Foreign Minister Hisham Sharaf had described the recent statements of the UAE representative to the United Nations, and her reference to her country’s need for more American support to intercept Yemeni’s defensive missiles, as “a show that look like the false scream of a guilty person before the world.”

Sharaf indicated the statements of the UAE delegate during an interview with US network CNN is “an attempt to preempt any international investigation that will hold the UAE warplanes responsible for killing and wounding more than 300 people as a result of targeting a prison in Saada province.”

Minister Sharaf reminded the delegate of the UAE that “her country was engaged in a meaningless war because it seeks to appear before the world as a small Sparta and has leadership that possesses the illusion and desire to occupy Yemeni lands and islands and dominate its financial resources.”

He explained that “Yemen has tried to leave the UAE out od the scope of retaliatory attacks after it had announced more than once its withdrawal from Yemen. However, the UAE government’s attempt to return again to the aggression coalition and impose a new political and military reality on the Yemeni arena, made Sana’a take an appropriate position and send warning messages to ensure that the UAE does not fall into the trap of illusions of control or continue serving the agendas of other countries in the region, including the Zionist entity.”

Sharaf affirmed that “Sana’a, with its defensive forces and all its military capabilities, reserves the right to fully defend Yemen and the Yemenis, and to defend itself and to attack any source of danger that the political authority and the Government of National Salvation deem appropriate.”

The Foreign Minister renewed the call to the ruling authorities in Abu Dhabi and Riyadh to not be deceived by the promises of support from outside their borders.

He reiterated that “these countries must work to pursue a path of peace and good mutual relations, and to stay away from the daydreams of some about the possibility of imposing whatever they want in terms of political reality and governance in Yemen.”
