PUTRAJAYA, May 22 (Bernama) -- Malaysia strongly condemned the perpetrators
behind the horrific suicide bombing in Sana''a during the rehearsal for Yemen''s
Unification Day, yesterday.
Foreign Minister, Datuk Seri Anifah Aman said the suicide bombing had caused
the unnecessary loss of lives of innocent soldiers.
"In this regard, we (Malaysia) convey our condolences to the families of the
bereaved soldiers and wishes a speedy recovery to those wounded," he said in a
statement here today.
Anifah said the heinous act would aggravate further the security situation
in the country and derail the efforts of President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi towards
the national reconciliation and dialogue.
"Malaysia fully support the Transitional Government under the leadership of
President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi and is confident that the people of Yemen would
act in unison by not allowing such action to distract the democratic transition
process towards constitutional reforms," he said.
Anifah said all Malaysians in Yemen were safe and advised them to take all
the precautionary measures needed to ensure their safety.
