There are news items floating around that the U.S. Embassy in Sana’a will be moved to Aden. That news is not true. Below via the Daily Press Briefing on March 2, 2015:
QUESTION: Is there any plan to open any embassy or U.S. embassy there or an office?
MS. HARF: In Aden?
MS. HARF: No.
QUESTION: No plans?
MS. HARF: No. We are currently exploring the option of some embassy staff relocating to another country in the region as we’ve done other places, but no, no plans to relocate to Aden.
QUESTION: And how do you view that some Arab states especially moved their embassies or opened embassies in Aden?
MS. HARF: Well, each country can make its own decisions about where it has its diplomatic representation, and we’ll make ours.
That’s that for now.
