Malaysia welcomes the latest announcement by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, on behalf of the Joint Forces Command of the Coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen, on a unilateral ceasefire for a period of two weeks, commencing on 9 April 2020.

 

The decision signifies the Coalition's readiness to support the call by the United Nations, and it is a positive step forward towards a permanent ceasefire. Malaysia urges all parties in Yemen to respect the ceasefire and refrain from taking actions that may undermine it.  

 

Malaysia reiterates its full support for the efforts to find a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Yemen through dialogue and diplomacy. Malaysia urges all parties to take the opportunity of the ceasefire to work towards this objective.
