A top American general was involved in supplying Yemeni forces with counter-terrorist training in order to help the regime “independently conduct counter terror operations”, according to US diplomatic cables obtained by WikiLeaks.

General Petraeus, President Ali Abdullah Saleh and the Yemeni military agreed to increase the tempo of cooperation and training at a meeting in Sana’a in August 2009. Petraeus also facilitated the provision to Yemen’s military of 25 M-113 armored personnel vehicles from Jordan.

The general then sent the head of the US military’s special operations command centre to Sana’a to discuss their counter-terror cooperation in detail and he advised on training opportunities with US allies in the region, the cables reveal.

President Saleh, Yemeni Air Force (YAF) Commander Muhammad Saleh al-Ahmar and Republican Guard commander Ahmed Ali Abdullah Saleh all responded positively to Petraeus’ suggestion that Yemen’s military take advantage of training opportunities at the King Abdullah Special Operations training centre in Amman and the al-Dhafra Air Warfare centre in the United Arab Emirates.

US ambassador Stephen Seche remarked that Saleh was apparently keen on the counter-terror training from the US because of “the threat it [terrorist presence] poses to his regime and his own personal security”.
