The Foreign Minister of Yemen, Eng. Hisham Sharaf, sent a letter to Helga-Zepp LaRouche and all members of the international LaRouche Movement, expressing gratitude for the campaign they have been waging to stop the war of aggression on Yemen and calling for integrating Yemen into the New Silk Road paradigm. The minister had been given the LaRouche statement personally on Sept. 13 by Fouad Al-Ghaffari, the chairman of the Yemeni Advisory Office for Coordination with the BRICS.
The letter was published by the Khabar Agency news service on Sept. 19 under the title: “Foreign Minister Sends a Telegram to the New Silk Road Lady.”
Eng. Sharaf said he “received with great gratitude your special statement which calls for establishing an international commission to investigate the violations committed by the Saudi aggressors against our people, and also the six-point appeal to stop the aggression immediately, lifting the blockade imposed from the sea, air and land, and moving towards reconstruction, development along the New Silk Road as a means to restart the national dialog which was interrupted by the ugly war of aggression.
“We in the Republic of Yemen have also followed with great interest the Xiamen BRICS Plus summit and the vision embedded in its declarations. We have also followed the events launched by your movement…” He noted in particular the LaRouchePAC activists who distributed leaflets with the statement at the UNGA, leaflets “that convey the aspirations of the people of Yemen to live in peace and prosperity which is identical to the true American dream of peace and human development.”
Eng. Sharaf also expressed Yemen’s full “support and solidarity with the families of the victims of the 9/11/2001 terrorist attack”, who intend to take the masterminds behind the atrocities to court.

Yemen is fully committed to actively participate in “building the New Silk Road to establish world peace,” he concluded.
At the current session of the Human Rights Commission (HRC) in Geneva, Schiller Institute representative Ulf Sandmark spoke at the side event dedicated to the ongoing crimes in Yemen, as part of the Swedish NGO Yemen Solidarity. In the side event on Syria on Sept. 18th, Sandmark was invited to speak about the “inappropriate use of UN mechanisms for political and media propaganda.”
On both occasions, Sandmark raised the repercussions of the protection of the terrorist’s onslaught against these two nations, in keeping up the protection of the Saudi-led terrorism all over the world. He was also able to distribute the statement on Yemen to the participants.
