Riyadh - Saba
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak, participated in the second ministerial meeting of the International Coalition to Defeat ISIS, which was held in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, in the presence and participation of 85 countries and partner organizations, represented by foreign ministers and a number of senior officials and interested parties, to consult and exchange visions on ways to facing the serious challenges posed by the "terrorist organization" ISIS and extremist organizations.
In the speech of the Republic of Yemen, the Minister of Foreign Affairs said, "Yemen is in a continuous war to confront extremist and terrorist groups and organizations such as ISIS, al-Qaeda, and the Houthi militias, who have caused and are still shedding Yemeni blood, destroying the national economy and causing a rift in the social and national fabric."
Minister Bin Mubarak cautioned against neglecting the strong relations that bind these terrorist organizations to each other, stemming from their common goal of spreading chaos and weakening governments.
He pointed out that the Yemeni agencies concerned with combating terrorism documented many evidences proving the close relationship of cooperation, coordination and financing and arming binding ISIS with the terrorist Houthi militia, which gave this organization the opportunity to arrange its situation and even enabled it to carry out a number of terrorist operations that targeted innocent people in Yemen.
Bin Mubarak pointed out that despite the challenges facing the Yemeni government, it was able, with the support of the Coalition to Support Legitimacy and international partners, especially the United States of America, to combat terrorist groups, led by ISIS (the Yemen branch), through direct confrontation and intelligence, in addition to combating financing these organizations and drying up their sources of funding, pointing out that the government continued to work on reforming and rehabilitating agencies and units specialized in combating terrorism, modernizing the legal structure and working on completing the national strategy to combat terrorism.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs expressed his aspiration for the international community, especially the partners in the Global Coalition against Daesh, to support the government and help it achieve peace and stability in Yemen, in a way that will reflect positively on the efforts aimed at ending the threat of the terrorist organization Daesh and other terrorist organizations.
