UAE pressures Hadi to lift sanctions against ex-president’s son

SANAA, Feb. 25 (YPA) – The United Arab Emirates (UAE) sought to pressure exiled resigned president Abd Rabu Mansour Hadi to apply to the UN Security Council to lift sanctions against Ahmed Ali Abdullah Saleh, close sources to Hadi said.

Hadi rejected the UAE request, arguing that it is not of his powers and that canceling or imposing sanctions on any Yemeni personal is up to the sanctions committee of the UN Security Council.
