Yemen’s Central Bank condemns US, UK ‘interference’ in currency issuance


The Central Bank of Yemen strongly condemned the positions of the American and British embassies regarding the issuance of the 100 riyal coin, considering it a blatant interference in Yemen’s affairs and a continuation of the economic war waged by the aggression coalition against the Yemeni people.

In a statement issued on Friday, the Central Bank clarified that the United States is leading the war on the economy and the national currency, and its rejection of issuing the coin is evidence of its hostile stance towards the Yemeni people.

The statement pointed out that the US-UK aggression has planned and launched the economic war on Yemen since the relocation of central bank functions to Aden, targeting the national currency through counterfeiting, forgery, and illegal issuance.

The statement affirmed that the aggression countries reject any step that would alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people and improve the economic and living conditions, as they are the ones responsible for the collapse of the national currency’s value and the deterioration of the economic and living conditions.

The Central Bank held the aggression countries directly responsible for any repercussions that would affect all Yemeni governorates, including the Southern occupied provinces.
