On Wednesday evening, the former Yemeni Minister of Transport, Saleh al-Jabwani, launched a scathing attack on the mouthpieces of the militias that were attacking a large sector of Yemenis and accusing them of collaborating with Qatar and Turkey.
And he wrote in a tweet monitored by the “Yemeni Scene”: “The militias’ mouthpieces have been calling a wide segment of Yemenis (agents of Qatar and Turkey), and demonizing them in an unprecedented way.”
He added: “Currently, the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, and the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, are in continuous meetings, and today, Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, is the guest of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.”
Al-Jabwani concluded by saying: “Do the mercenaries not learn that the golden political rule says politics are interests, not permanent enmity or permanent friendship.”
Earlier on Wednesday, Turkey and the UAE signed, in the capital, Ankara, 10 agreements in various fields, in the presence of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his guest, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
On August 31, the Turkish President discussed with the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, in a phone call, bilateral relations and regional issues.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said in televised statements last September that “a positive atmosphere is hanging over Turkish-Emirati relations in recent times.”
