Saudi calls for unconditional application of UN resolutions on Yemen

Saudi Arabia yesterday called for the "unconditional application" of UN Security Council Resolutions on Yemen as the only way "to bring Yemen out of its crisis".

The call came during the weekly meeting of the Council of Ministers chaired by Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Naif, deputy prime minister and minister of the interior, at Al-Salam Palace in Jeddah.

In a statement to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), Saudi Minister of Culture and Information Adel Bin Zaid Al-Tarifi said the cabinet has reviewed a number of reports on regional, Arab and international developments including efforts to support the Yemeni people and its legitimate government.

The council "emphasised the importance of the unconditional implementation of the Security Council Resolution No. 2216 to bring Yemen out of its current crisis, simultaneously intensifying efforts to provide humanitarian aid to the brotherly people of Yemen," Al-Tarifi said.

The council has also stressed the words of the crown prince who warned: "Whoever tries to tamper with the security of the Kingdom and its people will meet with a fitting response in the field without delay."

As many as 15 people were killed and 33 wounded on 6 August, when a suicide bomber attacked the Special Security Forces compound in Abha, Saudi.
