MALAYSIA WELCOMES RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN THE REPUBLIC OF YEMEN

MALAYSIA WELCOMES RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN THE REPUBLIC OF YEMEN 

 

Malaysia welcomes the recent establishment of the Presidential Leadership Council in the Republic of Yemen initiated by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) as a positive step towards finding a comprehensive political and peaceful solution to the conflict in Yemen.

Malaysia fully supports the initiatives by the United Nations (UN) SecretaryGeneral Special Envoy for Yemen including the recent ceasefire agreement between the Government of Yemen and the Houthis. This bodes well for the cessation of hostilities and unimpeded access for humanitarian relief to the people of Yemen.

Malaysia reiterates its support for an inclusive and peaceful solution to the conflict in Yemen through dialogue and negotiations. Malaysia is concerned over the prolonged conflict and urges the concerned parties to respect international human rights and international humanitarian laws.
