ABU DHABI, 24th November, 2015 (WAM) His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, has said that the people of Yemen are capable of facing all challenges and re-building their state on a purely Yemeni and Arab foundation.

Sheikh Mohamed made the remarks while receiving this evening at Al Shati Palace chiefs and dignitaries of Yemen's Marib tribes, headed by Marib Governor Sultan bin Ali Al Arrada and accompanied by Brigadier Mussalam Al Rashedi, Commander of Marib Liberation Force. The guests thanked the UAE for supporting Yemen during the recent plight, after the coup staged by the rebellious militias and their allies against legitimacy and international consensus.

Sheikh Mohamed welcomed the Sheikhs and dignitaries of Marib tribes and said the UAE shared blood with brothers in Yemen. The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan stood with you in the past, we stand with you today and tomorrow and May Allah the Almighty grant your country and your people peace, stability and prosperity."

He added that the Saudi-led Arab Coalition contributed significantly in helping Yemen regain its sovereignty, under a vision that serves the aspirations of the Yemeni people for stability and development.

"The UAE, under the leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, always stand by brothers in the times of trials. The sacrifices of our sons and the sons of Yemen and of the other Arab Coalition countries will not go in vain. Such sacrifices will lay the foundation for a historic phase in the region that will preserve the Arabic Yemen from external interventions and ensure regional security," he added.

Sheikh Mohamed affirmed the Arab Coalition's determination to continue its support to the legitimate government in Yemen and to enable it deliver its duty in clearing Yemen from the remnants of rebellion, mutiny, extremism, ignorance and violence.

"At the same time," he continued, "we support political solutions and implementation of relevant international resolutions when genuine intentions and tangible steps are taken by the militias to end their rebellion."

The Yemeni tribal chiefs and dignitaries thanked the UAE for its firm and historic stand and for the sacrifices offered to see a strong Yemen, capable of facing up to all challenges and regional and sectarian ambitions that seek to sow sedition and destruction in Yemen.

They also applauded efforts of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and his directives to provide assistance to the Yemeni people affected by the war launched on them by the rebellious militias, and added that the projects being implemented by the UAE have contributed in stepping up return of the people to their homes in many liberated provinces.

Sheikh Al Arrada conveyed the greetings of Yemeni President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his thanks to the government and people of the UAE. He said the delegation was visiting the UAE to offer condolences on the death of Emirati martyrs who made heroic sacrifices defending Yemen.

Sheikh Al Arrada said some regimes, especially in Yemen, tried to drive a wedge between the Yemeni people, who are bound by the same blood, history and faith. He praised the UAE and the Arab Coalition countries for the sacrifices made to end the crisis.

He recalled the deeds of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and his contributions to the development of Yemen and Marib province in particular, including construction of the Marib-Sana'a highway and of Marib dam.

He also said Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan meant every word when he said before the liberation of Marib that soon, the Yemeni and Emirati flags will fly over Zayed Dam.

"Shortly after, the two flags did fly there, thanks to the sons of the UAE and their brothers in the Arab Coalition."
