FM renews government’s commitment to peace option

Baku – Saba
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak, renewed the government’s commitment to peace option and support for the United Nations’ efforts to end the war and achieve sustainable peace based on the terms of reference for a political solution in Yemen represented by the Gulf initiative and its implementation mechanisms, the outcomes of the comprehensive national dialogue, and Security Council resolutions, especially Resolution 2216.

In our country’s speech delivered today at the summit of the Non-Aligned Movement contact group held in the Azerbaijani capital, Baku, devoted to discussing global recovery after the (Covid-19) pandemic, the Foreign Minister stressed that peace cannot be achieved without the presence of a real partner that abandons the option of war, believes in political partnership and equal rights for all Yemeni people, renounces violence as a means to impose its political agendas, and believes in the state as the sole owner of power and weapons, and therefore any peace project in Yemen must include these foundations, otherwise peace will turn into a mere opportunity and station for the Houthi militia to try to impose and achieve what it could not achieve through war, and thus new cycles of violence will be generated and chaos, internal strife and waves of migration will prevail.
