Minister of Information Muammar al-Eryani has updated foreign journalists operating from the Middle East about the latest events Yemen is going through.
Muammar al-Eryani met a number of reporters and correspondents in Cairo on Wednesday and made them aware about the situations Yemen is going through as a result of the Saleh-Houthi militias' coup' d'état. Also made a reference to the political process being envisioned to sort out the conflict.
The minister gave the journalists an account on the situation their Yemeni peers are subjected to, from arbitrary detention to killing and torture, at the hands of the Houthi rebels.
He presented figures and facts on the Houthi militias' continued violations, citing the case of Abduraqeeb al-Jubeihi a veteran journalist and university teacher whom the rebels subjected to a 10-minute court trial and sentenced him to death.
The minister also cited the recent case of one Houthi attack in Taiz that killed three journalists and injured two others all at once in one attack in Taiz.
Al-Eryani narrated to the journalists the chain of events in Yemen through the transitional period and to the Saleh-Houthic coup and the present situation.
He affirmed the commitment of the political leadership headed by President Abdu Rabbu Manour Hadi to achieve peace and put an end to the suffering of the Yemeni people.
The war was never a choice, minister al-Eryani said. But the rebels' war on the people compelled the state to defend them and their legitimate choices for a civil federal state.
"The Yemeni state, led by H.E President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi, his deputy Lt. Gen. Ali Mohsen Saleh and Prime Minister Ahmed Obeid bin-Daghr, is behaving responsibly toward its people and is seeking a genuine lasting peace that prevents the militia from conducting coup again."
The minister said the militias don't recognize any references for peace, have no sense of responsibility toward the people and don't care for the people's suffering.
The government is working in two directions, minister al-Eryani says. "Restoring the state back from the rebels and secondly fighting terrorism and extremism."
Bin-Dagher's government is exerting enormous efforts to re-normalize life in the territories under its control, and has a reconstruction plan in spite of the scarcity of financial resources, al-Eryani goes on.
The minister spoke highly of the role of the Saudi-led Arab coalition in humanitarian support to Yemen.
He specifically cited the support King Salman Relief Center offered to curb cholera in Yemen as per the directives of crown prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz
