ADEN, Yemen, Sept 12 (NNN-SABA) – Dr. Ahmed Obaid bin Dhughr, prime minister of Yemen, met in this Yemen’s temporary capital of Aden, with the UN regional representative of the High Commission for Refugees Affairs in Yemen, Ayman Gharayba.
The Yemeni news agency, which carried the news, said that, during the meeting, bin Dhughr confirmed that his government was shouldering its responsibilities, towards Somali refugees and other nationalities, residing on all Yemeni territories, encouraging them to voluntarily return home through UN-adopted programmes.
He drew the attention that, the government suffers from the continuing flow of illegal immigrants, from the African horn, forcing extra burdens on the already-impoverished war-hit authorities, following the coup staged in Sanaa by the Houthi militias and troops loyal to deposed president Saleh.
For his part, the UN official lauded the Yemeni government’s efforts for refugees, confirming the importance of standing by Yemen, in such difficult circumstances.
