“The Awamer tribes have gathered today. We met here in Hawarem in order to discuss what is going on in the country in general. We have expressed our willingness to adopt the position of the area’s tribes – the tribes in Hadramawt province – in order to defend the country against any aggression. In fact, the security of our country is related to the security of entire Yemen as well as neighboring countries. We, the people of Gulf countries, are prepared to fulfil our duty in defending our homeland. You have doubtless seen these gatherings that have come from everywhere to declare that they are united against any aggression or sabotage that could target our country. We are prepared to defend our homeland. Peace be upon you.”
