Yemen welcomes final statement of EU FMs meeting

SANAA, June 26 (YPA) – The Foreign Ministry welcomed on Tuesday the final statement of European Union foreign ministers meeting, which affirmed that there is no military solution to the conflict in Yemen.

“The ministry supports the efforts of the UN Secretary-General’s special envoy, Martin Griffiths, to reach a comprehensive and just political solution respecting the unity and sovereignty of the Republic of Yemen,” an official source at the ministry said in a statement.

The source pointed out that the fact that the army fired missiles at the aggression coalition countries comes in the framework of self-defense, which is a right guaranteed in all divine laws and international laws and conventions.

He stressed the importance of condemning and stopping the targeting of civilians by the aggression coalition warplanes.

The source referred that the Supreme Political Council and the National Salvation Government confirmed on more than one occasion to the international community and the UN envoy their readiness for engaging in the political settlement process as long as it will lead to ending the aggression and lifting the comprehensive siege.
