In a press release, chancellor Al-Muflehi said: UAE played a leading role and assumed responsibility while the vacuum was huge after liberating Aden and Other governorates. Unfortunately, the authority was then totally absent and unable to fill in this vacuum in addition to neglecting the recovery of security and intel systems and other governmental organizations.
He indicated that UAE assumed responsibility of all defensive, security and human aids aspects in addition to restoring hospitals, schools and roads. Therefore, UAE should be thanked for filling the vacuum while the state was absent. He also indicated that UAE was at the right place in the right time and unless UAE moved at the critical moment, Aden would be now one of Al-Qaeda or ISIS emirates. With this effective role and determinative decision, UAE, after God, had the merit to purify Aden from terrorist groups and destroying their dens.
Al-Muflehi also thanked the leaders of UAE indicating that “the objective of this tendentious media campaign against UAE is very clear as some powers are not only hostile against UAE but also against the Saudi packed Arab Coalition as a whole.
Al-Muflehi asserted that this media attack against UAE works on distorting UAE reputation and decreasing its role as this attack is completely consistent with Al-Houthi discourse. Accordingly, all voices that attack UAE are attacking the Arab Coalition and the legitimacy as well.
