KUWAIT CITY, June 14: The Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to Kuwait HE Rahma Hussein Al-Za’abi affirmed that the liberation of the city of Hodeida from Houthi militias and its return to the Yemeni legitimacy will enhance the chances of reaching a political solution after a three-year stalemate.
In a press statement, he stressed the need for legitimate intervention of the Arab coalition forces in the battle of the port city of Hodeida especially since it came at the request of Yemeni government and depended on the resolutions of the UN Security Council.
Ambassador Al-Za’abi insisted that the intervention by the Arab Coalition will prevent exploitation of Hodeida Port for prolonging the war by smuggling Iranian weapons and collecting funds for the Houthis.
He said the Arab coalition is constantly in touch with the UN and relief agencies to ensure continued smooth transmission of humanitarian aid and the protection of civilians.
A high-level meeting was held by the committee of military institutions (Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Interior, National Guard and Kuwait Fire Service Directorate), reports Al-Anba daily quoting informed sources.
They explained that a number of issues were discussed during the meeting such as increasing the salaries of employees of military bodies and ministries.
The suggestion to increase the salaries was made because a number of officers resigned from their jobs in the military in order to work in the oil sector or technical ministries for higher salaries.
The sources said they are expecting reinstatement of exceptional benefits especially pension for retired officers – KD 700 for a Major General and KD 500 for Brigadier, adding that the service period for an officer should be at least 27 years.
