In its statement, the Yemeni government reiterated that the Riyadh agreement represents a major step towards redressing the imbalances that accompanied the liberation of most of Yemen’s territory from Houthi militias, and uniting efforts to accelerate the completion of the aborting of the Iranian project in Yemen.

it also appreciated the Saudi role under the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Deputy Defense Minister Prince Khaled bin Salman in supporting Yemen and its people in various circumstances.

The Yemeni Cabinet condemned the continued military escalation of Houthi militias and their repeated violations of the UN truce in the western province of Hodeidah.

The cabinet stressed that the silence on these escalations and violations encourages the Houthi militias to continue to torpedo efforts to bring peace and disavow its obligations to the international community in the implementation of the Stockholm Agreement.
