Yemen-UAE dispute over Socotra 'resolved': Yemeni PM

Al Zayani highlights GCC's firm positions

Dr. Al Zayani said that the Gulf initiative to resolve the Yemeni crisis has received support from Arab, regional and worldwide countries, pointing out that Yemen is a neighbor of the GCC countries that are working to address the Yemeni crisis through six tracks.

The attacks come just a day after Saudi troops landed on the Yemeni island of Socotra, according to al-Malki, spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition.

The Yemeni prime minister went on to hail the Saudi mediation to ease tension over Socotra Island and UAE support against Houthi rebels. Iran must respect the Charter of the United Nations (UN) and stop providing Houthis and terrorists with missiles threatening the area, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

Yemeni government and the United Arab Emirates agreed on a deal for the UAE forces to withdraw from the strategic Socotra Island.

Bin Daghr "listened to the committee about the implementation of the agreement, which foresees the pullout of the UAE forces from Socotra, the elimination of tension and the mechanism to ensure that the security forces at Socotra airport and port will return to their duties", Saba said. "It reflects the differences between a legitimate government and our brothers about the rights to the island", - said in a statement.

In response, the UAE Foreign Ministry said the military presence in all liberated Yemeni governorates, including Socotra, fits within the efforts by the Arab coalition to support "legitimacy at this critical stage in the history of Yemen". Yemen has subsequently accused the UAE of trying to "colonize" Socotra.

The UAE is part of a Saudi-led Arab coalition that has been fighting the Shiite Houthi rebels since March 2015 to support the internationally-recognized government led by President Hadi.

As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Socotra island is a Yemeni archipelago on the Indian Ocean, which has unique nature, trees, water springs and a strategic location.
