'US wants to turn Yemen into another Afghanistan'

Tehran, January 12: Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki says the US, Britain, and Israel are implementing a plan to turn Yemen into another Afghanistan.

Addressing a group of students at Imam Sadeq University in Tehran on Monday, Mottaki said the three countries want to make Yemen the fourth Muslim country to be attacked after Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

Mottaki added that the invasion and occupation of Yemen are going to be carried out under the pretext of the campaign against terrorism and Al-Qaeda.

Earlier this month, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and US President Barack Obama agreed to fight what they called terrorism in Yemen and Somalia.

The UK and the US decided to fund a counter-terrorism police unit in Yemen to tackle the alleged threat from the country.

The US has been deeply involved in the war in Yemen, sending its special forces to train the Yemeni military and conducting air raids in both the northern and southern parts of the country.

The Iranian foreign minister called on the Yemeni government and regional countries to help resolve the “tragic” situation of the poor country.

Mottaki said the United States invaded Afghanistan eight years ago under the pretext of fighting extremism and drug production in the war-torn country.

But the war has brought nothing but insecurity and extremism, he noted.

Mottaki said drug production has also dramatically risen in Afghanistan as a result of the military intervention.
