Almotamar.net - The Yemeni Vice President Abid Rabu Mansour Hadi has said that investigations were continuing in the case of the parcel bombs, affirming they were an extension of the terrorist act which started with fighting tourists and oil companies, in addition to other groups fighting security stability in the country in general. Tourism in Yemen was affected much as well as the Free Zone in Aden due to terror acts , in addition to the economic aspect especially investment and oil area.
The Vice President Hadi added that Yemen works with all means to overcome this crisis through cooperation with the international community and neighbourly Arab countries. It is an excellent cooperation for combating terror and it seems that two parcels were actually transferred from Yemen , as were discovered in Dubai and Britain, but there are parcels transported from other countries other than Yemen.
In an interview to the Lebanese Middle East newspaper lately, Hadi emphasized that Yemen suffers from the unemployment problem of which he said it is for Yemen more dangerous than al-Qaeda.
He said Yemen has a special circumstance, i.e. the large number of workforce that does not find any job opportunities and “we have youth under the age of 30 years, forming around 60% of the population suffering from unemployment, thus they are more dangerous from al-Qaeda with regard to Yemen. They form pressure on Yemen and employing them would help empty extremism and terror. “
The Vice President ha called on the international community and the Arab countries, particularly the Gulf States, to invest in Yemen and establish projects this large labour and build strategic projects.
“We shall not be able to solve this plans we put, especially under growth of population in Yemen. Each year there are 600 thousand pupils enroll in the primary school education and that forms a huge burden, “the Vice President said.
In 2007 the opposition Yemen Congregation for Reform (Islah) Islamic oriented Party maintained its having political and media sway over the Joint meeting Parties (JMP) block, also consisting of Yemen Socialist Party and the Nasserite Unionist Organisation.
Doctors use the word “crisis” to describe the point at which a patient either starts to recover or dies. President George W. Bush’s Iraqi patient now seems to have reached that point. Most commentators appear to think that Bush’s latest prescription – a surge of 20,000 additional troops to suppress the militias in Baghdad – will, at best, merely postpone the inevitable death of his dream of a democratic Iraq. Yet as “Battle of Baghdad” begins, factors beyond Bush’s control and not of his making (at least not intentionally) may just save Iraq from its doom.
