March 18 2002

Eight political parties issued on March 14 a statement opposing US vice-president Dick Cheney’s visit to Yemen and the possible results of that visit.
The statement said that the US administration has been giving false promises with regard to the Palestinian issue, and seeking a free hand to launch a new strike against Iraq. According to the statement, any new strike against Iraq will enable the US to dominate militarily on the region’s capabilities and destabilize its security.
