Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Meets Head of Yemen’s Presidential Council

Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan on Saturday discussed bilateral relations with Yemen’s Presidential Leadership Council Chair Dr. Rashad al-Alimi, the state news agency (WAM) reported.

During his meeting at the Qasr al-Bahr in Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed congratulated Alimi on taking the leadership of Yemen and wished him success in overcoming the difficult circumstances the country is experiencing and moving towards stability and peace.

He also expressed the UAE’s support for the council’s efforts to achieve stability in Yemen and fulfill the aspirations of the Yemeni people, adding that the UAE will spare no effort to support Yemenis at all levels.

WAM added that Sheikh Mohammed and Alimi also exchanged views on regional and international issues of mutual interest.

The new leadership council, consisting of a president and seven vice presidents, took power from former president Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi earlier this month.

On 19 April, the council held a largely symbolic oath in Aden in front of members of a parliament elected in 2003.

The UN-brokered truce, which took effect on April 2 after a round of Yemeni consultations in Saudi Arabia, was largely maintained, providing a rare respite from the fighting.
