Saudi Arabia has welcomed on Friday the new UN security council resolution on Yemen and said that it confirms the success of military pressure on Houthis.
The kingdom also said that the presence of international observers will prevent Houthis from obstructing and violating the ceasefire in Hodeidah.
The kingdom pointed out that the resolution reassures that the diplomatic efforts by Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir and Saudi ambassador to the UN Abdullah al-Mouallimi had direct influence on the international community’s decisions.
The kingdom also clarified that the resolution supports the Sweden deals as well as confirms the effectiveness of resolution 2216.
