While the Yemeni Ansarolá popular movement condemned the illegal and illegitimate order issued last Firday by the new U.S. head of state against seven countries with a Muslin majority such as Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan.
“It is a sovereign right of the United States. However, it is illegal or illegitimate to consider Yemen as a very likely source of terrorism or extremism.” The sources of the local Foreign Ministry based in Sana, under the control of Ansarola movement.
The sources of the Yemeni government, who is led by the former President Adbu Rabu Mansur Hadi, pointed out: “Those decisions support the position of the extremists and encourage the discrimination.”
Finally, the sources of the Yemeni foreign ministry regretted the decree issued by the U.S. President Trump:
“Even though it could be for a short period of time. It prevents the entry of the Yemeni citizens to the United States. Donald Trump imposed new obstacles for the entry of radical Muslins as refugees and he promised a great reconstruction of the U.S army."
