US engaging with all parties to reinforce Yemen's sovereignty:

Commenting on the tensions between Yemen and the United Arab Emirates over the island of Socotra, the US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said the US is engaging with all parties to reinforce Yemen’s sovereignty.

"The United States is closely following the situation on the Yemeni island of Socotra and engaging with all parties to reinforce Yemen’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as the need for de-escalation and dialogue," read a press statement from Nuert.

The Yemeni government and political parties have been in tensions with the UAE over the latter's deployment of troops to the Yemeni island of Socotra and takeover of the air and seaports of the archipelago indicating that the UAE has shown occupation ambitions. 

Nauert's statement read:  "Political dialogue is necessary for the Republic of Yemen Government to rightfully ensure the safety and security of its residents on Socotra and throughout the rest of the country. The Socotra archipelago has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. The Yemeni people, along with their unique cultural and natural heritage, have already suffered immeasurably as a result of the ongoing conflict in Yemen. Yemen cannot afford further divisions. The United States calls on all parties to the conflict to focus on and embrace the UN-led political process, with the unified aim of a safe, secure, and prosperous Yemen."
