UAE is in harmony with the international positions to solve Yemeni crisis

UAE government

The position of the UAE from the conflict in Yemen, about four years ago, stems from its basic principles in the return of Yemenilegitimacy and protection of the Yemeni people and provide the conditions for them to live decent, like many people in the world.

“The UAE continues to strive for peace on the entire Yemeni soil, with the return of the legitimate institutions to work in normal conditions, in which everyone coexists in security and peace. Any effort to prevent the Huthi rebels from continuing to tamper with the capabilities of the Yemeni people according to foreign agendas aimed at creating chaos in the region by supporting the rebels with weapons and various kinds of moral support.

After the Houthi coup against legitimacy in September 2014, the UAE is using all its efforts to resolve the Yemeni crisis. And continue its military efforts within the framework of the coalition to support the legitimacy of the liberation of the cities and villages of Yemen from the grip of the Huthi rebels, in addition to the presence of the UAE in the diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis has been prominent in official statements and through fieldwork.

The UAE’s belief in the right of the Yemeni people to enjoy security has always led to an openness to all regional and international initiatives.

The participation of His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, recently in the meeting of the Quartet on Yemen in London, is nothing but a confirmation of the same role.

Relations

The UAE support and attitude toward Yemen is due to two main reasons. The first concerns the historical relations that necessitate the government and the people of the UAE to stand by their brothers in Yemen and this is how it has always been since the establishment of the state. And the second reason is the duty to stand for the security of the whole region and protect it from the different threads and dangers coming from Iran and other regional interventions.

Yemeni sailors on the Great Lakes rest in history

Our state is residence to the nation’s major population of Yemeni Americans. However what drawn Yemeni immigrants to Michigan, to begin with?

 

For a lot of, the driver was a financial opportunity, especially the type that may be discovered while sailing the Great Lakes.

 

Sally Howell is a part professor of background at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, in which she runs the Center for Arab Dance. Gallal Albaneh is Yemeni-American and also graduated from the Terrific Lakes Maritime Academy a year ago.

 

Howell states that seafaring possesses a lengthy and also storied background in Yemen, however, that it’s hard to set up a single year while   Yemeni immigration to the United States began. Her class works on a public history project that looks for to expose a few of the unknown details of this story.

 

Her students began by performing interviews with Yemeni sailors, most of which arrived in America in the 1950s.

 

“When they arrived in America, they did not have good English skills. And at the time, if you desired to work with Henry Ford or GM or even any of the Big Three, you needed to be able to speak English or you couldn’t get employed in danger,” Howell said. “But they might get hired on the ships .”

 

Throughout that point, Howell states that Yemen was going through a  significant insufficient economic and educational opportunities, which triggered its citizens to look for those opportunities elsewhere.

 

“People required work, they required to assist their young families. When they started coming to America, they discovered that, although these were not in high-income tasks here in America, they might send money home,” Howell said.

 

Now, Yemeni-Americans might pick a career on the higher seas for numerous reasons. Albaneh states that several important grown-ups in his life were sailors, such as one friend of the family who inspired him to join the Great Lakes Maritime Academy.

 

There, he earned a degree in Maritime Engineering and became a Third Assistant Engineer.

 

Howell states that the objective of her class’s task is to emphasize the tales of Yemeni-American sailors similar to Albaneh and those who emerged before him, by contributing to the collection at the Arab American Nationwide Museum in Dearborn.

 

“We’re going to ensure that they have a part of their museum that shows the tale of Yemenis on the Terrific Ponds because they have been a part of the overall economy of this location for around 70 years,” Howell stated.

Emirates Red Crescent distributes humanitarian aids to people of Shanwa, Yemen
Dr. Samer bin Abdullah al-Jalili, a spokesman for the King Salman Center for Humanitarian Relief and Works, said that the joint efforts between Saudi Arabia and the UAE support the humanitarian issue in Yemen in a significant way.
In the past three years, the two countries have made the largest funding in the history of the United Nations with $ 3 billion in total in different kinds of aid.
Al-Jataili said that funding has always been announced to fill gaps in humanitarian projects in Yemen. The last two initiatives were to provide $ 250 million to provide good quality food for the people fasting in Yemen, to help them have a normal (fasting month) Ramadan.
He stressed that cooperation with the UAE is close and continuous for the relief of the Yemeni people, who suffer from the horrors of the intervention of the Huthi militias, which is blocking the arrival of aid, pointing to the monitoring of killings and the forced detention of representatives of relief convoys.
Speaking on the sidelines of a symposium on the efforts of the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Action at the Islamic Cooperation Festival, which concluded yesterday in Abu Dhabi, Al-Jataily said: “Cooperation with the UAE is not only humanitarian in Yemen but in many other regions. Saudi Arabia
and the UAE are very close and engaged together in various fields of humanitarian work.
He pointed out that before that there was a Hodeidah initiative launched by the Kingdom and the UAE worth 500 million dollars, which reflects the great cooperation between the two countries in the humanitarian relief work.
Perhaps the most important benefit of this cooperation is the presence of the UAE Red Crescent on the ground, It is located in Yemen and covers many
provinces and many sectors, including health such as cholera, food, refugee camps, education, health, and food.
