Fouad Al-Ghaffari Appointed Yemen Prime Minister’s Advisor on BRICS Affairs, and Zepp-LaRouche Congratulates Him

Aug. 19, 2022 (EIRNS)—On Aug. 15, the office of Prime Minister Prof. Abdel-Aziz Saleh bin Habtour of the National Salvation government in Sana’a, Yemen announced the appointment of Mr. Fouad Al-Ghaffari as “Advisor of the Prime Minister’s Cabinet for BRICS Affairs.”

Al-Ghaffari, a close friend of the Schiller Institute and the LaRouche movement, is the founder of the ALBRICS Youth Parliament in Yemen. He has advocated Yemen’s cooperation with the BRICS group since 2014 after attending U.S. launching of the Schiller Institute’s Special Report “The New Silk Road Becomes the World Land-Bridge.” He has since become became the Yemen Representative of the International Alliance of BRICS Strategic Projects based in Moscow, and was selected as a member of the Cultural Work Group of BRICS Summit 2020. He is also country director for the BRICS International Forum of India. Recently he was elected as Yemen representative of the African Union Youth Assembly.

Al-Ghaffari distinguished himself in the midst of the war of aggression against his country by the Saudi-coalition, backed by Britain and the United States, as the visionary for victory and reconstruction of Yemen. He focused on educating Yemen’s youth in the “Metrics of Progress” of the great American economist and thinker Lyndon LaRouche. In collaboration with the Schiller Institute, his ALBRICS Youth Parliament in Yemen produced a detailed plan for reconstruction of Yemen and connection to the Belt and Road Initiative, called “Operation Felix.”

Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche congratulated Mr. Al-Ghaffari and wished him all success in his new post. “We strongly believe that he will serve his nation and the world well from this position,” she said. Zepp-LaRouche, who has called Yemen a “pearl in the necklace of the New Silk Road,” indicated that Mr. Al-Ghaffari and his youth organization represent the incredible resilience of the Yemeni people, who are proud members of a civilization and culture that traces its roots back thousands of years. Zepp-LaRouche and the Schiller Institute, especially the late Marsha Mallouk, have stood strongly by the side of Yemeni people since 2015 against the aggression and economic blockade imposed on them.

It is noteworthy that both Prime Minister bin Habtour and Yemen’s Foreign Minister, Engineer Hisham Sharaf, have signed the Schiller Institute’s call for establishing a New Bretton Woods international system.
