Yemeni Prime Minister Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr said on Sunday he was back in Aden to stop the situation from deteriorating, and to prevent more damages to people’s lives, their security and interests.

“There will be no more bloodshed or fighting because the government is back to Aden. We will exert all our efforts to stop the security situation from further deterioration and to halt assassination attempts against dozens of religious and military figures,” the PM said.

Two months after leaving to Saudi Arabia's capital Riyadh, bin Daghr and a number of ministers returned to Yemen last Thursday to run the country from the southern city of Aden, the temporary capital.

The prime minister promised Yemenis that his government would work on restoring electricity, water and other services to all areas.

“Thanks to your support, we will succeed in restoring security and services,” bin Dagher said.

The prime minister also promised that his cabinet would work on new projects in Aden, Lahej, Abin and Dhale.

“We will also enhance the efforts of the National Army and the Resistance to liberate the city of Taez, from where we would achieve victory,” he said.



Speaking at a gathering organized by the Education Ministry in Aden on Sunday, bin Dagher promised that his government would support the army’s victory in the cities of Marib, Al-Jawf, Al-Bayda, and Al-Hodeidah.

The prime minister promised to chase ISIS and al-Qaeda cells until they disarm and stop violent acts. “We promise to protect our country from extremism and radicalization which is causing violence, bloodshed and destruction in Yemen,” he said.

Bin Dagher added that the problem in Yemen is over national identity.

“There are attempts to search for a new identity that has nothing to do with the past or present history of Yemen,” he said.
