EU welcomes Saudi initiative to end Yemen's crisis

Brussels (UNA-OIC) – The European Union has welcomed Saudi Arabia’s initiative to end the Yemeni crisis and reach a comprehensive political solution.

European External Action Service (EEAS) Spokesman Peter Stano said in a statement late on Monday that the EU affirms that the initiative is a positive step in the process towards peace.

He noted that the EU encourages all parties to engage without delay with the UN Special Envoy for Yemen so that a ceasefire is immediately declared and an inclusive political process under the auspices of the UN is quickly launched.

The EU statement acknowledged the efforts of Oman and the United States in this regard, reiterating that a comprehensive political agreement remains the only solution to ending the crisis in Yemen.
