Yemen's President Lauds U.S. Intervention Curbing Iran Regime's Expansionism
Yemen's President Abdu Rabbo Mansur Hadi lauded the "active interventionism" of the new United States administration against the Iranian regime’s systematic interference in region-wide affairs, Asharq Al-Awsat English reported on Saturday.
Hadi’s remarks followed a meeting with the U.S. Ambassador to Yemen, Mathew Taller.
President Hadi stated that that the U.S. stance is compatible with Yemeni views in fighting terrorism and attempting to put an end to the Iranian regime’s "expansionist ambitions."
Iran's regime has been backing an armed coup ripping Yemen apart, manned by loyalists of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh and the Houthi militias.
For his part, the U.S. envoy reiterated his government’s stance on backing the internationally recognized Hadi-led government in Yemen, and assisting with the realization of a peace solution, the report added.
