KUWAIT, July 6 (KUNA) -- Kuwait welcomes the extension of the ceasefire agreement in Yemen, and the renewed commitment shown by Yemeni parties to halt all military operations, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
Kuwait praises the efforts made by the United Nations special envoy for Yemen Hans Grundberg to strengthen this commitment, which comes in the context of the initiative announced by Saudi Arabia in March, 2021, to end the Yemeni crisis, said the ministry in a statement.
The ministry also hopes that the extension of the truce would contribute to reaching a "comprehensive political solution to the Yemeni crisis based on the three references (Gulf Cooperation Council Initiative, the Comprehensive National Dialogue Conference and Security Council Resolution 2216)... in a manner that preserves the security and stability of Yemen and its territorial integrity and achieves the aspirations of the Yemeni people."
