Your criticism of your government's cooperation with USA without specific defined assistance is interesting. Does this mean you would not cooperate with the War on Terror? Is it not your obligation as a responsible country to assist in the War on Terror?
Is it not in your self interest to fight terror?
Your paper also had an article on vessel insurance and the impact on goods in Yemen, terror affects all of us. Many terror groups are from Yemen and without US assistance and efforts Yemen would be isolated as a terror nation.
It seems to me that your cooperation is in your self interest. I would not want to think that you are only cooperating for the money.
