123 RF / Wojciech Wrzesień

A UAE cargo ship carrying 7,000 tonnes of diesel has arrived at the Yemeni port of Mukalla.

It will be used to refuel engine generators at power stations in the country's coastal cities.

The shipment is the second batch of power support that the UAE has dispatched to help Yemen maintain its local energy needs.

"The new power shipment provided by the UAE will contribute to maintaining local energy needs and refuel power stations," said Dr. Khalid Al Akbri, Director-General of the Yemeni Petroleum Company.

"It will also beef up the company's revenues and save the funds that were supposed to be spent for buying fuel oil," he added, expressing gratitude to the UAE government for the support.
