Qatar to resume projects in Yemen

The restarting of work comes after a visit to Doha by Yemeni President Abdrabbo Mansour Hadi

Qatar to resume projects in Yemen

Qatar will restart several delayed investment projects in Yemen, it was agreed during a visit to Doha by Yemeni President Abdrabbo Mansour Hadi, according to reports at the weekend.

Yemen President AbdRabu Mansour Hadi paid an official visit to Qatar last Wednesday, where he met with the Emir of Qatar Hamad bin Khalifah Al Thani.

The Emir issued directives to complete Qatari projects in Yemen, such as Sheikh Khalifa Medical City in Taiz city and Al Ryan residential project in the capital Sana’a, as well as Hodeidah-Abyan road and the coastal round road in Aden city, Yemen’s Saba News Agency reported.

“Qatar will complete all projects being under implementation and the projects needed by Yemen”, the Emir was quoted as saying.

The Qatari leader also reiterated his support for the Sana’a government, which had deteriorated in the wake of the deteriorating political situation in Yemen and accusations Qatar was financing rival factions, the Yemen Observer newspaper said.
