Helga Zepp-LaRouche Addresses Diplomatic Seminar on New Silk Road in Sana’a, Yemen

The Foreign Minister of Yemen Hisham Sharaf sponsored and addressed a seminar in the capital of Yemen on Nov. 7, dedicated to China’s Policy Paper on the Arab World, and to Yemen’s potential role in the Belt and Road Initiative. Foreign Minister Sharaf reviewed the friendly and productive historical relations with China, including many infrastructure projects that it had contributed to modern Yemen in the past decades before the outbreak of the Saudi war on Yemen in 2015. He expressed Yemen’s full readiness to join the Belt and Road Initiative and to protect the Maritime Silk Road at the Bab El-Mandab Strait and the Red Sea, and he urged China to play a constructive role in the political solution for the war in Yemen. The Chinese government does not yet recognize the government in Sana’a, which Sharaf represents, but rather the government of deposed President Abed-Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who is in exile in Saudi Arabia and has little or no control of matters in Yemen.Hier   weiterlesen
