Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani condemned on Saturday the ongoing clashes in the temporary Yemeni capital, Aden.
He described the unrest as a “heinous crime that violates the bond of fraternity and moral and humanitarian values, jeopardizes the lives of civilians and threatens regional security and stability.”
He called on the rival parties in Aden to return to reason and prioritize the higher interests of the Yemeni people.
The enemies of Yemen alone benefit from this unfortunate clash, Zayani warned.
This stage requires Yemeni powers that are keen on the country’s security and stability to exert efforts to support the legitimate government and continue its mission to restore state sovereignty throughout its territories, he stressed.
