The Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan, hopes that the formation of the new government in Yemen will contribute to achieving stability. The Saudi minister said on his Twitter account on Sunday, “We congratulate the Yemeni brothers for forming the new government, which comes in implementation of the Riyadh Agreement.”
He added, “We are looking forward that this will contribute to achieving security and stability and meeting the aspirations of the brotherly Yemeni people for a political solution that ends the current crisis.”
The Saudi Deputy Defense Minister, Prince Khalid bin Salman, announced earlier on Sunday that the Riyadh Agreement overcame all difficulties with the efforts of the Yemenis, the Kingdom and the UAE, indicating that Saudi Arabia is looking more than ever before for Yemen to reach safety.
He also stressed that the Kingdom continues, under the directives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and the Crown Prince, in a steadfast approach in order to achieve security and stability for Yemen and achieve the aspirations of its people.
In turn, the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Adel Al-Jubeir, considered the formation of a new government for Yemen in accordance with the provisions of the Riyadh Agreement an important step in achieving a political solution and ending the crisis, establishing security and stability, and achieving the aspirations of the Yemeni people.
The formation of the new Yemeni government, which was announced on Friday, was widely welcomed by the international and Arab world, because this government may represent the unification of Yemenis in the face of the Houthi militia, and to promote a political solution in the country.
It is noteworthy that the Riyadh Agreement, which was signed in the Saudi capital last year, had stipulated many military arrangements, as well as the appointment of a new governor and security director for the port city of Aden, in addition to the formation of a new unity government, which would include the different political spectrums of Yemeni society.
