Saleh calls Qatar Emir, attacks Aljazeera

SANA’A, Jan 27 (Saba) – President Ali Abdullah Saleh telephoned Qatar’s Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani on Thursday asking to urge Aljazeera Satellite Channel not to abuse its profession while reporting on the situation in Yemen. The channel should stop incitement, exaggeration and distorting the facts, and furthermore it should avoid acts that encourage unrest, violence and sabotage in the Arab countries, Saleh urged. “What the channel is doing only serves the Zionist entity and terrorist groups such as al Qaeda as well as the enemies of the Arab seeking to ignite dissent and threatening the future of the next generations”. The media is supposed to have a noble message which is to serve the truth, reinforce unity and peace, help face challenges and expose plots in the Arab World, Saleh said in his conversation with Emir Hamad. The two leaders also discussed ways to strengthen the bilateral cooperation in all areas and the latest developments in the region. FRSaba
