Presidential source dismisses news of Seaport and Islands leasedeal
[09/09/2017 05:33]

ADEN-SABA
A presidential source has dismissed the circulating news on social media that President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi has leased the Seaport of Aden and the islands of Socotra and Meone to the United Arab Emirates as part of a deal that allegedly defusestensions with the GCC country.

"The news on deals are absolutely baseless," the source told Yemen News Agency (Saba).

The Saleh-Houthi militias "fabricates such news" and circulates them, as part of their escaping crises within their ranks and distracting the public attention from that, said the source.

"The Decisive Storm and Hope Restoration operations led by the Arab Coalition have clear announced goals that all coalition members pursue under the leadership of Saudi Arabia," said the source while denying any Yemeni differences with the UAE.
"Our battle is continuing until the end of the coup, restoration of the state and achieving the goals of the Arab Coalition."
The source called on the media to "stop circulating such rumors and verify their stories with the official authorities rather than remaining fooled by the putschists' media and losing credibility before their audience.
