FM receives UN Special Envoy for Yemen
(Abu Dhabi) – H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister, was updated on the latest situation in Yemen during a meeting with the United Nations (UN) Special Envoy for Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Progress of the UN efforts in the country, which receives full support of the Yemeni legitimate government, was also discussed.
Sheikh Abdullah and the UN envoy exchanged views on the latest regional and international developments and reviewed avenues of the humanitarian partnership and methods of co-ordinating relief and developmental activities and programmes in Yemen in a way that serves joint humanitarian aspirations.
HH emphasised the sincere keenness of the UAE’s wise leadership to alleviate the suffering of the brotherly people in Yemen, improve their humanitarian conditions and stand by them in these current circumstances.
Sheikh Abdullah underscored that the UAE would spare no effort in extending all possible assistance to ease the repercussions of the current events in Yemen on the Yemeni people through the Saudi-led coalition to support the legitimate government.
The UN Special Envoy said the UAE maintains a good reputation in the delivery of humanitarian assistance to Yemen, indicating that this supportive stance for the Yemeni people was not strange or new to the UAE’s leadership. It was a natural extension of the generosity of the late founding father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
