Aden- Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi has called Yemenis to integrate and unify their efforts in front of all hindrances.

“Remember, our greatest party and doctrine is Yemen, which gathers us all with our different spectrums, and our enemy is one; the insurgency, its militias, and those who are around them,” said President Hadi in a meeting with political leaders, state men, government officials, tribal leadership and dignitaries held in Riyadh Monday.

In the meeting attended by Vice President Ali Mohsen Saleh and Prime Minister Ahmad Ubaid bin Dagher, Hadi warmly welcomed the attendants, especially those who arrived from battlefields, highlighting their fight to defend Yemen, a country that would never be a dwelling to Persians or to any new thought harming tolerant and moderate Islam Yemen has adopted throughout history.

“Yemen will never fall to Iran and its proxies, Yemen will never allow harming the land of the two Holy Mosques from its pure soil,” said Hadi.

He explained to the attendees the stages of the Yemeni crisis that started from Houthi-Saleh’s insurgency with Iran’s support.

“It is a coup against the Southern Movement’s peaceful struggle and against Peaceful Youth Revolution.”

“It is a rebellion against the Gulf Initiative, the National Dialogue Conference’s outcomes. It is an overthrow against the draft constitution, which reflected the NDC’s outcomes,” Hadi added.

“This is the real coup carried out by the three evils and their relatives: Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, Ali Saleh and Ahmad Ali Abdullah Saleh, who financed the coup,” he stressed.

He reviewed his efforts in honoring his commitments on defending the project of Yemen that is stated in the constitution draft, as a solution for power and wealth partnership and realization for justice, security and stability.

He greeted and assured citizens who suffer miserable economic conditions as aftermaths of the coup of overcoming the crisis.

Hadi also called on Yemenis to unify efforts and join the army to restore the state and reconstruct it, urging them to socially integrate and remain vigilant until they liberate every part of the country from the rebels.

He directed a message to the Saudi-led Arab Coalition and thanked them all for their efforts in supporting Yemen.

“You presented the most valuable you have, your youth, whose blood merged with blood of our best youth for protecting Arabism, and Yemenis will never forget that.”
