Defending Yemen is  a brotherly duty: PM

Manama : His Royal Highness Prime Minister HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa yesterday reiterated Bahrain’s firm and unwavering stance in carrying out its pan-Arab and Islamic duties towards Yemen asserting that “defending brotherly Yemen is a duty and supporting it is a necessity.”

Prince Khalifa, while receiving his Yemeni counterpart, Dr Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr, at the Gudaibiya Palace affirmed that Yemen is a country with a special status among the Arab states and “it cannot be left prey to foreign interference.”

“Yemen will be victorious in its war against foreign interference in the country, thanks to the support of the brotherly countries led by Saudi Arabia,” HRH Premier said.

HRH the Prime Minister also stressed that Bahrain’s participation in the Saudi-led coalition to support legitimacy in Yemen stems from its belief in Arab unity and in the need to counter all forms of foreign meddling aimed at subverting security and stability across the region. 

While reviewing the latest regional and global developments, HRH Premier and his Yemeni counterpart affirmed that the region is being targeted through policies to harm its stability.

They also agreed that the historic decision of Saudi Arabia, led by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, to launch the “Operation Decisive Storm” had protected Yemen and the region against plots to spread chaos and fighting.

Dr Daghr, who is on an official visit to the Kingdom, updated HRH Premier about the latest developments in Yemen as well as about the efforts being exerted by the legitimate government, in coordination with the Arab Coalition forces, to reinforce security and stability.

He also briefed the Prime Minister about the efforts being made to deliver relief aid and assistance to those who need them in his country.

Dr Daghr expressed thanks and appreciation to HRH Premier for the gracious welcome and hospitality accorded to him, as well as for Bahrain’s honourable stances in support of Yemen and its legitimacy, and efforts to provide relief aid for needy people there.

The Yemeni Prime Minister lauded HRH Premier’s farsighted and in-depth vision of the current developments in the region and asserted that “this is leading the Kingdom towards more progress and prosperity”.

HRH the Prime Minister hosted a lunch banquet in honour of his Yemeni counterpart.

Earlier, upon his arrival in Bahrain, the Yemeni Prime Minister was welcomed by Deputy Premier, Shaikh Khalid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, and a number of senior state officials. A convoy of honour, led by Deputy Premier Shaikh Khalid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa,  accompanied the Yemeni Prime Minister throughout his stay in Bahrain.
