The eight years of War have been strengthening Yemeni armed Forces, and it becomes more powerful than before. Yemeni military forces are developed in all aspects of militaristic manufacturing from gun’s bullets to drones and ballistic missiles. Today, Yemen becomes a force to be reckoned with in Arabic peninsula and overlooking Bab al-Mandab.
His Excellency, President Mahdi Al-Mashat said that through the United Nations Envoy of the International Community, Sana’a has warned that America and the United Kingdom were seeking to push the war for escalation. We are stressing that the whole world will be damaged if the escalation in Yemen re-escalates.
As they said, America and the United Kingdom will not come out in peace if Sana’a decides to return to escalation. The President confirmed that we (Sana’a) are ready for peace as well as we are ready war. Our enemies have to choose the way they want. We are in Sana’a having the complete rights and legitimate defence of our country, our freedom and our independence.
President Al-Mashat declared these statements with all strength and clarity fo demonstrate to the divisive that Sana’a has the own decision and determination. It has the sufficient courage and war capabilities for defending in this war for the coming five decades, which means that his statements are warning messages to the Riyadh regime, to the Americas and to the United Kingdom.
We invite them to come honestly with true intentions to peace. Therefore, Sana’a affirms that we are very ready to take the decision of Escalation, while the Riyadh initiative is completely absent in the reality to move towards genuine peace.
