[06/March/2017]

div style="text-align: left;">SANA'A, March 06 (Saba) - Foreign Minister Hisham Sharaf welcomed on Monday the statement issued by the US ambassador to Yemen that the Washington supports peace efforts under the auspices of the United Nations and there is no option for military solution in Yemen.

Matthew H. Tueller's statement added that the only solution would be through comprehensive peace negotiations in accordance with parallel political and security procedures.

Sharaf said in a statement to SABA that this confirms what has already announced by the previous US administration in more than one occasion, most recently the principles' points of Muscat that was sponsored by former Secretary of State John Kerry.

He added that the Supreme Political Council and the Government of National Salvation had announced in more than one occasion for proceeding with peace so as to reach a political solution for a Yemeni - Yemeni solution in one hand and a Yemeni-Saudi political solution on the other hand that ensure a comprehensive, equitable and honorable solution that ends the causes of the aggression against Yemen.

Foreign Minister called on President Trump's administration to prove the credibility and neutrality to stop arms deals exported to Saudi Arabia, including internationally banned weapons.

He also called for ending logistical and intelligence support to aggression's countries against Yemen in order to create a conducive environment for any future peace negotiations under the auspices of the United Nations and the five permanent members of the Security Council.
