Saudi Arabia on Wednesday welcomed the “positive results” of the peace talks with a delegation from Sana’a, which is visiting the Kingdom to carry forward the peace process in Yemen.
In a statement, the Foreign Ministry also praised a meeting of Saudi Defense Minister Khalid bin Salman bin Abdulaziz with the Sana’a delegation.
The ministry said that it “welcomes the positive results of the serious discussions regarding reaching a roadmap to support the peace process in Yemen.”
The peace talks were held by the Saudi communication and coordination team headed by Saudi Ambassador to Yemen Mohammed bin Saeed Al Jaber, with the participation of a delegation of the Sultanate of Oman, with the Sana’a delegation, headed by Mohammed Abdulsalam Felitah.
According to the ministry, the talks are “a continuation of the meetings the Saudi team held in a previous period with the chairman and members of the Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council in Sana’a between April 8-13.”
According to the Saudi Foreign Ministry, Saudi Arabia welcomed a Houthi team to the country for peace talks on September 14.
Yemen has been immersed in violence and insecurity since 2014, when Iranian-backed Houthi rebels took control of much of the nation, including Sana’a.
