UAE hails Trump for vetoing Congressional resolution to end US involvement in Yemen war

DUBAI: United Arab Emirates Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash has appreciated US President Donald Trump’s veto of a congressional resolution that sought to end US involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

“President Trump’s assertion of support to the Arab Coalition in Yemen is a positive signal,” Gargash said on Twitter early on Wednesday.

He described the US President decision to veto the resolution as both “timely and strategic”.

The White House said on Tuesday that Trump had vetoed the congressional resolution.

“This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future,” Trump said in the veto message.
