Socotra (Debriefer) - The United Arab Emirates seeks to hinder the reconstruction and development efforts in Socotra and to solely control the Yemeni strategic archipelago, Yemeni government and local sources said Monday.
Emirati-backed forces stopped repairs (funded by the Saudi Development and Reconstruction Program for Yemen) in the building of Socotra seaport's management, the sources added.
UAE-affiliated soldiers and Emirati Red Crescent workers halted the ongoing works in the building without giving reasons behind this move, they claimed.
"This comes as part of obstructions laid by the UAE and Southern Transitional Council to reconstruction efforts in the island," they added.
