Oil reserves in Yemen exceed those in all GCC states: US report says

SANAA, Feb. 24 (YPA) – “Russia Today” Channel on Saturday published a report of US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in 1988 confirms that the oil reserves in Yemen exceed the oil reserves in all the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states.

According to a US geological survey report in 2002, the unexploited oil in Bab al-Mandab area alone exceeds 3 billion barrels.

The channel’s report concluded that the war taking place in Yemen is not a religious conflict between Shiites and Sunnis in Yemen or between Ansarullah and the Saudi Sunna as promoted.
