The United States welcomes and fully supports President Abdo Rabo Mansour Hadi’s decrees this week that continue the restructuring of Yemen’s military and security institutions. Yemen has experienced a significant transformation over the past year and these decrees are a tangible illustration of the positive steps that Yemen is taking along their path to democracy.
We look forward to the swift implementation of these decrees, which are consistent with the Gulf Cooperation Council Initiative and Implementing Mechanism as well as UN Security Council Resolution 2051. Reorganizing Yemen’s military and security institutions and establishing world class standards of professionalism and civilian control benefits both Yemen and the region. We will continue to work with President Hadi and the Yemeni people as they work to realize their aspirations for a stable, secure, and prosperous country.
