Al-Ayyam newspaper – Continuing since 2012.. Biden extends the state of emergency in Yemen


> Washington: Some members of Yemen’s government are a threat to national security

Yesterday, Thursday, the White House announced that US President Joe Biden sent a letter to Congress regarding the extension of the state of emergency related to Yemen.

According to the letter released by the White House, Biden said the state of emergency declared on May 16, 2012 will continue after May 16.

And the American network “CNN” quoted Biden as saying: “The actions and policies of some former members of the Yemeni government and others continue to represent a threat to peace, security and stability in Yemen.”

He added, “It also constitutes an extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, so I have decided that it is necessary to continue the declared national emergency with regard to Yemen.”

And yesterday, Thursday, the US envoy to Yemen, Tim Linderking, said that negotiations are underway to secure a more comprehensive armistice agreement in the country under the auspices of the United Nations.


This came in an online briefing after his return from a Gulf tour that included Saudi Arabia and the Sultanate of Oman, the contents of which were published on the website of the US State Department.


Lenderking said that during his tour to the Gulf, he met senior Yemeni, Omani and Saudi officials to advance peace efforts in Yemen.

In early May, the US State Department announced that Lenderking had started a Gulf tour that included Saudi Arabia and the Sultanate of Oman to “advance a comprehensive peace process in Yemen.”

It is noteworthy that former US President Barack Obama issued in 2012 a law authorizing the Treasury Department to freeze assets, interests and property in the United States and others against those proven to be obstructing the Gulf initiative and its chronic implementation mechanism and the peaceful political transfer of power in Yemen, in a way that meets the aspirations of the Yemeni people for change.

The law considers that those obstructing the political process in Yemen constitute an unusual and exceptional threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States of America.

The measures include those who obstruct the political agreement of the authority based on the Gulf initiative and its executive mechanism signed between the authority and the opposition on February 23, 2013, which removed former President Ali Abdullah Saleh from power.
