Gargash described the offences made by the TV channel as an accolade on the UAE chest as it came from an ill-minded media that harbours grudge against the Arabs.

Dr Anwar Mohammad Gargash, the UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs considered these offences and false accusations as promoting sectarian agenda-accusations, which increase at every victory that the Saudi-led Arab coalition attains in Yemen.

Gargash described the offences made by the TV channel as an accolade on the UAE chest as it came from an ill-minded media that harbours grudge against the Arabs.

Gargash on his Twitter page stressed that the TV channel does not represent an independent voice, rather an official ill approach.

Gargash said this media [Al Alam TV channel] promotes sectarian agenda and that our ability to break it up has become clear and obvious.

The minister believes that the 'accusations' made by Al Alam Tv Channel are an illogical mixture that is generated out of a sectarian framework, but ' it looks like as if these cries are because of the Arab cohesion and the success that we achieve jointly in Yemen."

Suspicious channel

It is worth noting that Iran's Al Alam TV Channel is of the most prominent channels and is backed by Al Houthi militants. The channel deliberately published false news and those promoting sectarianism in order to fight the Saudi-led Arab coalition in Yemen.

The last of such suspicious reports that the Channel released tackled lies and misleading news that carried the headline reading as "Yemen turned to an incinerator to Emirati soldiers and tanks", in an attempt to distort the role played by the UAE in standing with the Yemeni people in order for the Yemeni people restore their rights, and bring back the legitimate power to its national leaders.
