Drawing attention to the fact that such conspiracies were designed by the Western powers, Karman said, "Western governments have remained in the class of democracy and have been shaken rather than supporting the demand for democracy. Those who supported us during the Arab Spring have seen the Arab governments stand next to the empires and dictators." used expressions.
Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in this case in Yemen, Karman said, "The situation in Yemen is now unbearable. While waiting for an atmosphere of legitimacy in Yemen, these powers are much worse than the country.
