US apologies for Kerry's remarks on Yemen

The United States yesterday apologised to Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi following Secretary of State John Kerry's falsely-announced remarks about the ceasefire agreement which was held between Yemen's Houthi rebel group and the Saudi-led coalition.

Hadi said in a statement on his official website that he has met with the US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Tim Lenderking and the US Ambassador to Yemen Matthew H. Tueller to discuss peace opportunities for the Yemeni issue.

According to the statement, Lenderking and Tueller have expressed their appreciation of efforts Hadi made to solve the Yemeni issue over the past years.

The US' representatives have apologised, on behalf of the Secretary of State, following Kerry's remarks which they said were taken out of context by the media.
