In an interview with a Syrian newspaper, Yemeni Information Minister Hassan al-Lawzi said that Yemen's relations with the US are based on the two countries' interests in combating a joint threat, "the crimes of al-Qaeda," according to reports from the Yemen News Agency. He went on to explain that the country's strong ties with the US act to protect his country "from Zionist pressures."

According the the report, Lawzi said that "pressures were put on Yemen to establish relations with Israel."

While praising ties with Washington, Lawzi said that "Yemen's relations with the United States are strong, but not at the expense of the Palestinian people."
