Yemeni riyal continue to drop against foreign currencies in southern provinces

SANAA, Jul. 09 (YPA) – The Yemeni riyal exchange rate on Friday continued to drop against foreign currencies in the southern provinces, hitting 975 riyals per one dollar in Aden and Hadramout provinces.

The Association of Money Changers in Aden, southern Yemen, decided to stop all sales and purchases of foreign currencies in the exchange market in the southern provinces under the control of the Saudi-led coalition forces, starting from yesterday, Tuesday.

This came after the “Hadi government” loyal to the coalition dumped the local markets in the southern provinces with more illegally-printed currency.

Meanwhile, the Yemeni riyal exchange rate in the capital, Sanaa, remained stable at 600 riyals to the dollar. As for the average dollar exchange rate on the black market, it reached 605 riyals.
