Saudi committed to political solution in Yemen
The Saudi-led coalition welcomed a 'calm' to heavy clashes on the border which it said could lead to a political solution
Saudi Arabia is committed to a political solution to Yemen's war under UN-backed peace efforts and sees as positive a call by a Houthi official for Iran to stay out of Yemen, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said on Wednesday.
Arab coalition forces said earlier on Wednesday that tribal figures in Yemen have sought to create a “state of calm” on the border with Saudi Arabia to allow medical and aid materials to be sent to in Yemeni villages, the state-owned Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
The aid for the villages near areas of military operations will reach the people through the Olab border crossing.
The statement on state news agency SPA, also carried by Al Arabiya News Channel said that the Saudi-led coalition welcomed the “calm” to heavy clashes on the border which it said could lead to a political solution.
The coalition launched strikes against Iran-allied Houthi militia in Yemen to restore the legitimate government of President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi a year ago.
