AGSIW hosted a conversation with H.E. Reem Al Hashimy, minister of state for international cooperation of the United Arab Emirates. The roundtable discussion focused on the UAE’s role in the conflict in Yemen, both in terms of ongoing efforts to liberate the crucial port city of Hodeidah from rebel control as well as provision of humanitarian relief to the Yemeni people. In addition, Al Hashimy provided the UAE’s perspective on the historic reconciliation just reached between Ethiopia and Eritrea, and discussed the UAE’s role in bringing it about.
