Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi described the recent violent clashes in the province of Aden as “a warning bell for the Arab coalition and the Yemeni people”.

“This bell is for those who are trying to divert the course of Yemen and the Gulf battle against the Iranian project towards small destructive projects,” Hadi said in an audio recording marking the 7th anniversary of the Yemeni revolution on Saturday.

“Yemen will not allow adventurers and traders to enter the country into uncalculated confrontations,” he said, noting that his country is working to remove the causes of the recent upheaval.

Hadi also said that Yemen would not accept Iranian or Houthi rule or the return of the family rule, in reference to the rule of deposed president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Speaking from Riyadh, the Yemeni president said: “All parties are working hard to heal the rift and wounds, and remove the reasons that led to those painful events and turn this page forever.”
