Yemeni Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik stressed that the new power-sharing government that was announced on Friday will work according to a comprehensive policy to serve the interests of the people.
In remarks to Asharq Al-Awsat shortly after the cabinet was unveiled, he added that the government would also work on uniting national ranks to restore the state and end the Iranian expansionist agenda and its Houthi proxy.
“The cabinet has a clear plan and agenda on how to deal with the current challenges,” he stressed, adding that he was looking forward to the “support of brothers and friends and political, societal and popular forces in Yemen.”
Moreover, he said that the formation of the government was the culmination of efforts exerted by President Abdrabuh Mansour Hadi, the Saudi leadership and Saudi-led Arab coalition members.
Abdulmalik hailed in this regard Saudi Arabia for its role in bridging gaps between various Yemeni parties and implementing the Riyadh Agreement.
He also praised the cooperation of all parties that have prioritized national interests above their own and set their sights on the battle for Yemen and its Arab identity against the Iranian and Houthi agenda.
Iran and the Houthis are not only a threat to Yemen, but the entire region and world, warned the premier.
The government will work according to a “different and comprehensive methodology in order to normalize the situation in liberated provinces and unite military ranks to help speed up efforts to restore the state and end the Houthi coup,” he continued.
“We have a clear plan and agenda on how to deal with current challenges,” he stated.
“We are aware that the challenges are great, but we will bravely confront them,” Abdulmalik remarked. “We have prioritized the Yemeni people throughout the country, which has suffered enough. Now is the time for official and popular unity to improve living conditions.”
