Public Policy event with Excellency Rashad al-Alimi of the Republic of Yemen

Virtual event with Yemen's president

September 2022

The Middle East Institute was pleased to host His Excellency Rashad al-Alimi, Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council President, for a one-on-one conversation with Amb. (ret.) Gerald Feierstein. This event coincided with the president’s trip to New York City for the United Nations General Assembly.

Following the conversation, the Yemeni ambassador to the United States, His Excellency Mohammed Al-Hadhrami, and the United States Special Envoy for Yemen, Timothy Lenderking, participated in a moderated panel discussion by Amb. (ret.) Feierstein.

What are the prospects for moving beyond the ceasefire to a sustained resolution? Now that Yemen is six months into their newly formed Presidential Leadership Council (PLC), what is your assessment—both positive and negative—of the outcomes of this new political body? What is the PLC’s exact role moving forward in the negotiations to hopefully end the war?
