Cairo, April 17 ,2021, SPA -- Adel bin Abdurrahman Al-Asoumi, Speaker of the Arab Parliament, commended the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's efforts, under the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, in Yemen aimed at reaching a political solution that ends the conflict and the bloodshed and ensures regional peace and stability, the latest of which was the Kingdom's initiative to end the conflict in Yemen, which was widely welcomed by the UN Security Council yesterday.
In a statement issued today, Al-Asoumi welcomed the Security Council's call for the Yemeni parties to engage in the implementation of the provisions of the Riyadh Agreement in order to reach a comprehensive settlement and a political solution that achieves security and stability in Yemen, pointing out that it is a step that is in line with the international community's efforts to address regional issues and assume its responsibilities in preserving international stability.
Al-Asoumi affirmed that the Kingdom's commitment to supporting the legitimate government in Yemen and its people against the Iran-funded terrorist Houthi attacks reflects its keenness to achieve security and stability, to end the suffering of the Yemeni people, and to put Yemen's interests above the Iranian ambitions and destructive plans aimed at destabilizing security and stability in the region.
Moreover, Al-Asoumi lauded the Kingdom's recent initiatives, including the Gulf initiative and its support to all consultations to end the Yemeni crisis and reach a comprehensive political solution, as well as the Kingdom's role and efforts to support Yemen's security and stability through providing humanitarian assistance to the Yemeni people.
He stressed that these efforts reflect the Kingdom's good intentions and embody its pioneering role in ensuring the security and stability of the region.
The Speaker of the Arab Parliament called on the international community to adopt and support the Saudi initiative to save Yemen and to end the human suffering of the Yemeni people, and to engage in the peace process based on the three references adopted by the GCC Initiative and the implementation mechanism, the outcomes of the Yemeni national dialogue and the Security Council Resolution no. 2216.
