Yemen Supports Russia In Piracy Fight

Russian warships patrolling the Gulf of Aden are being backed in their anti-piracy fight by Yemen, it has been revealed.

Support for Russia's anti-piracy campaign was voiced by Yemeni President Ali Abdallah Saleh during a visit to Russia, who announced:

"We would like to discuss the issue of continuing to provide Russian warships with all facilities they need in order to fight piracy in our region."

"The goal we are pursuing is to provide for safe maritime navigation and enhance international peace and stability. These issues are of interest to the whole international community", he added.

Russian warships have been patrolling the waters off the coast of Somalia since the end of 2008, in an effort to reduce the number of pirate attacks on ships passing through the area.

The United Nations estimates that Somali pirates have attacked around 120 ships in the area over the past 12 months.

Mr Saleh is currently part way through an international tour, and his visit to Moscow marks his first in almost 5 years.
