Sanaa calls on Russia to stop selling Yemen embassy’s property in Moscow

SANAA, Nov. 02 (YPA) – Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Sanaa government called on the Russia to intervene and help preserve the property of the Republic of Yemen in the Russian Federation.

This came in a letter sent by Foreign Minister Hisham Sharaf to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, calling the Russian government not to respond to the request of some officials of the Riyadh-backed government, to relinquish the building of the Yemeni embassy and the residence of the ambassador in Moscow, which was granted by the Russian government to Yemen.

In the letter, Sharaf praised the depth of official and popular relations between Yemen and Russia.

“Moscow would understand the nature of the situation during the period of aggression and not abandon any property belonging to the Republic of Yemen, which is being subjected to military aggression and an unjust siege,” he added.

Sharaf pointed out that the future government and authorities in Sanaa would then work to address any problems related to the properties of Yemeni diplomatic missions and consulates abroad.
