Hadi in Mukalla for the first time since appointed president in 2012, instructs flights resumption in al Rayyan airport

The Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, accompanied by government officials, arrived on Sunday in Mukalla city; largest city of Hadhramout governorate,

southeastern Yemen, according to a government source.

 

According to the Yemeni news agency "Saba", President Hadi "instructed the government and the ministers concerned to consider all proposals and come up with urgent practical solutions for all the needs, topped by the resumption of the air flights in al Rayyan International Airport, in Mukalla".

 

President Hadi also issued instructions for the recruitment of the security elements who are still members of the popular resistance in Hadhramout governorate, southeastern Yemen, and include them as members of the Ministry of Interior.

 

Hadi, who is visiting Hadramout for the first time since his appointment as president in 2012, said that "Hadhramout today is recovering and rising again thanks to the sacrifices of its people and the role of the coalition countries, led by the Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates".

 

In a meeting with the leadership of the local, executive, military, and security authorities, Hadi stressed that Hadramout cannot be an attractive environment for extremism and terrorism, in a reference to freeing the governorate from al-Qaeda militants grip.

 

"Hadramout has suffered the oppression and marginalization for a period of time. It is now time for it to assume its natural position within the framework of the federal state, and away from the excessive centralism and tampering with the peoples' revenues".

 

It is noteworthy that President Hadi is visiting the city for the first time since taking office in February 2012, and was coming from Yemen's interim capital Aden city, south of the country.

 

Hadi is accompanied by the Prime Minister Ahmed Obaid bin Dughr and other government officials in a trip to see the situation in the city which was freed from al-Qaeda militants grip by the government forces backed by the Saudi-led Arab Coalition forces in last April.
