A Yemeni delegation of tribal chiefs and leaders from Marib has commended the performance of the UAE soldiers and the country's fraternal spirit in rebuilding the country.
Work is in progress, the delegation said, and the "highly competent" UAE soldiers are "working hand-in-hand with us".
The delegation told Khaleej Times they came to the UAE to show their gratitude and appreciation for the "great assistance" the country is providing by participating in the Saudi Arabia-led Arab coalition.
They said the relations between Marib and the UAE are deep-rooted. The late Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan built the main road in the centre of Marib - which leads to the Yemeni capital Sanaa - and the Marib Dam.
"The Arab Coalition forces managed to liberate the historic dam from the forces of darkness," the delegation said.
Meanwhile, Yemeni foreign minister Riyadh Yaseen attacked the Reform party, accusing it of "lagging behind".
