Yemen PM: End nears for Houthi occupation
  • Daghr said that the Houthi militia are Yemen’s foremost enemy who have destroyed facilities and looted public and private property
  • He pointed out that the government led by exiled President Hadi will proceed in the project of building a federal state that will achieve security and justice for the population of Yemen

Yemen’s Prime Minister Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr said his country’s legitimate government, supported by the Saudi-led Arab Coalition, would succeed and that the Iranian-backed Houthi militia’s occupation in the North was nearing its end.
Daghr confirmed this during his meeting in Riyadh on Monday with tribal leaders from the eastern Yemeni province of Mahra. He said that the Houthi militia are Yemen’s foremost enemy who have destroyed facilities and looted public and private property.
He pointed out that the government led by exiled President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi will proceed in the project of building a federal state that will achieve security and justice for the population of Yemen, including stability and safety to ensure local and regional peace.
The Yemeni prime minister reiterated, which was reported by Yemen’s official news agency, that the federal state is the first guarantor of rights, and that its idea, which resulted in the outcomes of the comprehensive national dialogue and formulated in the draft constitution, is based on justice in the distribution of wealth, power and partnership.
