UAE reprimands Pakistan for its neutral Stand on Yemen Crisis
KARACHI: United Arab Emirates have threatened of dire consequences should Pakistan keeps its stands to stay neutral in the prevailing Yemen Crisis.
Dr Anwar Mohammed Gargash, UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, while talking to Khaleej Times said that Pakistan will pay a "Heavy Price" for its ambiguous stand on Yemen.
He added, “Pakistan and Turkey vague stands is proof that Arab countries are the ones left to deal with Arab Security from Libya to Yemen.”
He suggested that Pakistan needs to take a clear stand favoring his allegiance to the six-nation Arab Gulf cooperation Council.
He went to make a statement that the gulf faces intense danger in terms of security and the cournties are to equate which side they wish to stand upon. “Tehran seems to be more important to Islamabad and Ankara than the Gulf countries,” Gargash pointed out that either you're with us or against.
He added, “During these tough times though our affluence remain in abandance, we lack political support”, he added.
All this has transpired in the adent when Pakistani lawmakers’ have drafted a resolution in a 5day long Joint session not to send our troops to aid Saudi-led coalition to curb revolt in Yemen rather to play a role of a mediator to ally the situation in the Middle-East.
Saudi Arabia’s military aggression against Yemen started on March 26 in a bid to restore power to fugitive Hadi. The airstrikes have killed hundreds of people and injured thousands more.
Ansarullah fighters have taken over state matters, citing the inability of Hadi’s former government to properly run the affairs of the country and contain terror and corruption.
In February, Hadi fled the capital, Sana’a, to the southern city of Aden, where he sought to set up a rival base. Hadi had stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Houthi revolutionaries. The then parliament, however, rejected his resignation, which he later withdrew in Aden.
Popular committees backed by Ansarullah fighters are continuing their advances despite the Saudi attacks while also stepping up their fight against al-Qaeda terrorists and secured many areas from the militants.
