Almotamar.net - The findings of the Human Right Council (HRC) mission's visit to Yemen were on the whole balanced except some information that still need some clarifications, Foreign Minister said here Saturday.
Abu Bakr al-Qirbi made the statement upon his departure to Geneva to present the Yemeni side's clarifications on the mission's report in the HRC meeting to be held on Monday to review the report.
He attributed the deficiency in the report's findings to the shortness of the mission's visit and inability to check documents pertaining to a number of issues mentioned in the report
"We will pose many of such issues. We will affirm that Yemen is keen on considering all human rights abuses and to be brought to court if there is an evidence", al-Qirbi said
"We want the truth", the Foreign Minister said, pointing that the HRC mission's visit to the country was based on a request from the Yemeni government to refute the false claims on human rights issues.
In 2007 the opposition Yemen Congregation for Reform (Islah) Islamic oriented Party maintained its having political and media sway over the Joint meeting Parties (JMP) block, also consisting of Yemen Socialist Party and the Nasserite Unionist Organisation.
Doctors use the word “crisis” to describe the point at which a patient either starts to recover or dies. President George W. Bush’s Iraqi patient now seems to have reached that point. Most commentators appear to think that Bush’s latest prescription – a surge of 20,000 additional troops to suppress the militias in Baghdad – will, at best, merely postpone the inevitable death of his dream of a democratic Iraq. Yet as “Battle of Baghdad” begins, factors beyond Bush’s control and not of his making (at least not intentionally) may just save Iraq from its doom.
