Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdul-Malik al-Mekhlafi discussed today with the Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Al-Jaafari the bilateral relations between the two brotherly countries and the prospects of enhancing and developing them.
During the meeting, held on the sideline of the Manama Strategic Dialogue in the Bahraini capital, al-Mekhlafi reviewed the latest developments in the situation.
He stressed that the Yemeni government's choice has always been to achieve peace through the United Nations and under the patronage of peace-sponsoring countries.
He pointed out that the Yemeni government has agreed to all peace proposals presented by the UN Secretary-General's envoy Ismail Ould Chiekh, unlike the Houthi rebels who responded with rejection and intransigence and crowed their war crimes with killing their former ally and ex-President Ali Saleh and conducting a campaign of assasinations and arrests against GPC party leaders.
Al-Makhlafi raised the issue of Yemeni detainees in Iraq and the potential of releasing them as soon as possible, as per the discussion between President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and the Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abbadi during the Iraqi Summit in Jordan.
They also discussed the case of kidnapped Yemeni citizen Dr. Abdo Saleh al-Farzaee, who left Mosul with his family when the Iraqi forces entered. But his family members were stopped and killed by a checkpoint and he was, later, kidnapped and forced to disappearance. Al-Mekhlafi demanded to know al-Farzaee's whereabouts and to investigate the family murder crime.
Al-Jaafari promised to make every possible effort to resolve the problem of detainees and to know the fate of doctor al-Farzaee as soon as possible.
