Defense Minister Mohammed Nasser has stated that the army restructuring process neither targets specific military units nor specific military leaders.

Minister Nasser gave assurances that the process was being conducted strictly according to military and scientific standards and bases.

“The process aims to build a conventionally qualified military institution to maintain its description as an entity which protects the country and its people, and which carries out its duties in an expert manner,” said Nasser.

According to the Defense Minister, the restructuring process was and is the outcome of purely Yemeni decision-making, and that experts of various nationalities had been utilized as technical consultants in the framework of international cooperation.

“I would like to assure all people that we are working within suggested frameworks, and so the restructuring will succeed,” he said.
