Yemeni Minister of Human Rights: UAE plays a major role in restoring stability in Yemen

CAIRO, 13th October, 2015 (WAM) –Yemen’s Minister of Human Rights, Izz Al-Din Al-Asbahi, has praised the leading role played by the United Arab Emirates in Yemen, especially its participation in the Arab coalition to support the legitimacy in Yemen and the humanitarian aid provided to Yemenis there.

In a statement today to the Emirates News Agency in Cairo after his participation in a press conference held by the Arab Commission for Human Rights at the Arab League to review its report on Yemen, Al-Asbahi said that the UAE plays a great role in restoring full stability in the Republic of Yemen.

He noted that what has been done by the UAE, and the nation’s martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the sake of Yemen, emphasised the promotion of Arab unity.

The Chairman of Arab Human Rights Committee, The Charter Committee, Dr. Hadi Bin Ali Al-Yami, said that he regretted the serious humanitarian situation taking place in Yemen and experienced by Yemini people who are suffering every day.

This came in a speech by Dr. Yami before the conference, which was devoted to presenting the report of a working team’s visit from the Arab Commission for Human Rights Charter Committee to the city of Aden after its liberation.

Al-Yami said that the report included important observations and conclusions about the great violations of human rights and international humanitarian law, pointing out that the team set recommendations to address the serious situation in Yemen.

The meeting reviewed the report of the Arab Human Rights Committee team, who visited Yemen and prepared a report with observations and recommendations which was then presented to the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, Dr. Nabil El Araby, to review before a future meeting of the Council of the Arab League.
