Aden- Commander of the Royal Saudi Ground Forces Lieutenant-General Prince Fahd bin Turki bin Abdulaziz affirmed that the Saudi and Arab support for Yemen would continue economically, militarily and security wise to serve the interests of the Yemeni people.

“The battle is going to go on until the achievement of its goals,” Prince Fahd said.

This came during the meeting between Chief of Staff Maj. General Taher al-Aqeeli and Prince Fahd in the Saudi capital on Wednesday.

Aqeeli explained that the Arab Coalition is “a turning point in the Arab joint actions, by which the Yemeni-Saudi and generally inter-Arab relations moved to a new and sophisticated state.”

“Yemen’s relations with its Saudi and Gulf neighbors are strategic and none is needless of the other,” Aqeeli said.
