The United Arab Emirates and Kuwait announced on Friday they will reopen their Yemeni embassies in the southern city of Aden instead of the capital Sanaa.

President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi worked in September to topple the national pact signed between all political factions in Yemen following the over throw of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Ansarullah opposition group, also dubbed as Houthis, placed Hadi under house arrest as he refused to abandon his attempts to divide the country.

Arab and Western states this month evacuated their Sanaa embassies and Hadi announced resignation. He fled on Sunday to Aden where he has set up a new seat of power, which the country’s parties believe illegal.

An aide to Hadi said on Thursday that Yemen’s neighbor Saudi Arabia was also moving its ambassador to Aden.

The ascendancy of the Yemeni opposition personalities is viewed with alarm by the Gulf’s rulers, the same governors who claim their support to the democracy in Syria in mid-March 2011.

Syria was hit by a violent unrest since mid-March 2011, where the western media reports accuse countries, mainly the USA, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar of orchestrating the civil conflict in the country and providing terrorist groups with money, weapons and trained mercenaries.

Ansarullah group, also dubbed as Houthis, has liberated the capital Sanaa from al-Qaeda operatives last September, and worked to restore security and stability in the attack-hit areas.

The powerful group issued the Constitutional Declaration, in a bid to avoid the power vacuum in the country following the resignation of President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his prime minister.
