PM meets US activists advocating Gitmo-Yemeni detainees' release
[12/June/2013]

SANA'A, June 12 (Saba) - Prime Minister Mohammed Salem Basindwa met here on Wednesday with a number of American activists, who show solidarity with the release of Yemeni detainees in Guantanamo.

The U.S. activists and jurists defending the Guantanamo detainees briefed the Prime Minister on the steps they have made in the United States to build advocacy towards the release of the Guantanamo detainees, whose detention in Guantanamo camp is contrary to human rights.

Basindwa pinned hope that the Yemeni detainees' situation to be settled as soon as possible, especially after the US president's decision to lift the ban on transferring Yemeni prisoners from Guantanamo to Yemen, pointing that the government in partnership with American friends would work on rehabilitating and reintegrating them into the society.

He valued the US activists' efforts and their humanitarian activities for the defense of human rights and freedoms.

During the meeting, the Premier and the US activists reviewed the main reasons for the presence of al-Qaeda in some areas in Yemen, including corruption, poverty and unemployment, and the government's efforts to counter terrorism and extremist ideology.
