The Yemeni Minister of Transport, Saleh al-Jabwani, does not stop raising the controversy, but this time he found himself in direct conflict with the prime minister, of which he is a member, following comments he made in the Turkish city of Istanbul, which he visited recently.

The government attack on al-Jabwani raises many speculations about the fate and future of the minister, who openly declared his rejection of Emirati interference in the southern Yemeni provinces, especially in the past two years.

According to sources closely related to the Yemeni government, the decision to change al-Jabwani from the Ministry of Transport will be issued soon, but the government, or more precisely its "presidency", is concerned about the man's boldness and fiery statements.

The Yemeni Minister of Transport, Saleh al-Jabwani, told reporters at the end of his visit to Turkey and his meeting with officials there, in which he confirmed that he had made technical arrangements to sign an agreement with Turkey to develop ports, airports and the road network in Yemen.

It seems that these statements have put the Yemeni government in an embarrassing position in front of both Saudi Arabia and the Emirates, whose relations with Turkey are experiencing known tensions.

The Yemeni government, through a private source in which it did not name it, was quick to disavow Al-Jabwani's statements about understandings with the Turkish government to modernize the ports and airports.

The source in charge confirmed that the statements circulated about arrangements for signing agreements, particularly in the transport sectors, especially ports, airports, etc., are lost from a personal point of view and do not represent the Yemeni government, according to the ِAden-based Yemeni news agency (Saba) in their version in Aden and Riyadh.

The source said that "the statements of some members of the government on this side during personal visits to sisterly and friendly countries without responsibility, and they were not referred to the Prime Minister and President of the Republic."

The source noted that Yemen is keen to "build good relations with brotherly and friendly countries, based on institutional work and within the framework of legislation and laws in force, and not the conclusion of agreements personally."

Al-Jabwani did not delay in responding to the statements of the "responsible government source", and the man launched a violent attack on Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik.

It was not enough for him to cover the coup in Aden and treachery with the president whom I trust in responsibility after he said that he and the transitional in one trench. Rather, he did not hide his aspiration and his wild ambition for power, even at the expense of the homeland. They went to the right place for them.

Al-Jabwani said on his Twitter account this evening, Tuesday, "It was not enough for him to cover the coup in the city of Aden, and treachery also against President Hadi, who I hope for responsibility," in a clear accusation against Maeen Abdulmalik.

Al-Gabwani confirmed that Abdul-Malik "said that he and Al-Transitional were standing in one trench.

Al-Jabwani said that Moein Abdul-Malik "did not hide his overall aspiration and ambition for power, even at the expense of the homeland, and he installed legitimacy with an outright opportunism."

He added: Today he covers the project of breaking up the country.

Al-Jabwani sent a direct message to Abdulmalik at the end of his tweet, saying: "Many have done what they have done and have gone to the right place for them."

In a related context, Saudi journalist Meshari Al-Zaidi yesterday attacked Yemeni Transport Minister Saleh al-Jabwani, against the backdrop of his recent statements regarding Yemeni cooperation with the Turkish government regarding ports and airports.

Al-Zaidi said in his tweet on his Twitter account: "Saleh al-Jabwani ... the Minister of Transport in the legitimate Yemeni government, says in an interview with the Al-Jazeera network that he will cooperate with the Turkish Erdogan government in order to exploit Yemen's ports."

He added: "This al-Jabwani ... represents who ?! Is the Yemeni government united in opinion? Or does everyone sing according to party or party interests?"

Al-Zaidi's cynical and arrogant questions, as far as describing Yemeni activists, seem to carry with it indications of the impatience of the coalition leadership, Riyadh and Abu Dhabi, towards the Yemeni minister, Saleh al-Jabwani, who is described by some of the UAE-funded media as chaotic .. and the decision to topple him seems very imminent .
