[efoods]Yemen’s foreign minister has ruled out direct US military intervention to tackle the al-Qaeda group operating in his country.
Abu Baker al-Qirbi made his remarks to Al Jazeera on Monday as the US and British embassies in the capital, Sanaa, remained closed to public following threats by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
“Yemen is going to deal with terrorism in its own way, out of its own interests and therefore I don’t think it will counterfire,” al-Qirbi said.
“The negative impact on Yemen is if there is direct intervention of the US and this is not the case.”
