Aden, Shawwal 25, 1438, July 19, 2017, SPA -- The Ministry of Information of the Republic of Yemen has expressed regret over an attempt by the United Nations' Mission to transport journalists into Yemeni territory via UN planes, said the ministry in a release issued on Tuesday.
Houthi-Saleh's rebel militias have been propagating their destructive project through humanitarian stories, manipulating the catastrophic conditions of the Yemeni people who have been experiencing difficult conditions since triggering the coup and western media finds fatty stories to present to its audience.
According to the release, all Yemeni people suffer horrific tragedy over rebels' wars, and hence we call foreign journalists not to provide legitimacy to the rebels through visiting militias held areas like the Capital Sana'a while conditions in other Yemeni cities truthfully deserve to be covered to reflect the real situation from the ground and a way of political agendas.
The ministry called all interested journalists to head to a nearby Yemeni embassy in their country to get entry visa through Aden and all liberated areas are opened to all journalists.
The government of Yemen has wide flexibility to deal with all issues and its doors are open to all without exclusion, chains or pressures, said the ministry.
It confirmed that foreign journalists should be careful on their security and safety to avoid kidnapping by armed groups and then paying ransom for freeing, a matter re-financing terrorism, an issue is not guaranteed by UN agencies.
