UAE suspends operations at Yemen embassy

By Wam

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday announced that it has suspended operations at its embassy in the Yemeni capital Sana'a and evacuated all diplomatic staff.

In a statement today the ministry said it took this decision due to the increasing deterioration of the political and security situation Yemen is witnessing and the tragic events after the Houthis undermined the legitimate authority and the political transition based on the GCC Initiative and results of the UN Security Council-backed national dialogue.
