The United States condemns in the strongest terms today’s terrorist attack against Yemeni military forces. We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and families of the scores killed and wounded in the attack. This cowardly attack highlights the lengths to which al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula will go to wreak havoc in Yemen and beyond. The United States remains committed to a comprehensive strategy that emphasizes governance and economic development as well as counterterrorism efforts in Yemen. We will continue to support President Hadi and the Yemeni people as they work to realize their aspirations for a brighter and more prosperous future.
