Foreign Minister Al-Yamani comments on his sitting next to Netanyahu. What did he say and did his statements convince the public?


Foreign Minister Khaled al-Yamani has been forced to clarify the issue that preoccupied Yemeni and Arab public opinion today, which was represented by his appearance seated in the chair adjacent to the head of Israeli occupation government Benjamin Netanyahu at the conference "Peace and security in the Middle East" held in the Polish capital Warsaw in the presence of foreign ministers and officials of several Arab countries and the world.

"The position of Yemen and President Hadi on the Palestinian issue and its people and leadership is unwavering and cannot be bid upon," he said in tweets on his account at the site "Twitter ".

The participation in Warsaw was not to discuss Palestine but to rally the international community to confront the Iranian expansionism in Yemen.

He added: Protocol errors are the responsibility of regulators, as is always the case in international conferences, and attempts to develop anti-factual dyes for political bidding will not deter us from defending Yemen.

The Yemeni presence in Warsaw, to confront Iran, was part of the battle to restore legality, from which only cowards withdrew.

Al-Yamani noted that he had met with the Secretary of State of the United States of America and conveyed his thanks to President Hadi for his continued support for the efforts to end the coup d'état and achieve sustainable peace, and discussed the dangers of Iranian threats to Yemen and the region and the need to address the policy the expansionist Iran and its support for the Houthis.

Al-Yamani considered Yemen's participation in the Warsaw Conference as "very important", adding: we discussed with world leaders at a roundtable, as we always do at the United Nations, and conveyed the vision of His Excellency the President to resolve the Yemeni crisis by curbing Iranian expansionism, as the Iranian threats to the security and safety of region and come up with common mechanisms to confront it.

Al-Yamani's action sparked a wave of anger and popular discontent among Yemenis on social media sites.

Netanyahu took advantage of what happened and posted on his Twitter account a story that included the photo of his participation in the Conference and the Yemeni side and written above it in Hebrew  "Making history."

In the context, U.S. special envoy to the Middle East Jason Greenberg, from within the Warsaw conference hall, said, "the microphone of Netanyahu was idle and he lent him his microphone," and he continued, "Netanyahu has commented on this jokingly: This is a new form of cooperation between Israel and Yemen."
