Yemeni President Abed Rabbuh Mansur Hadi yesterday discussed the crisis in his country in separate meetings with the ambassadors of Saudi Arabia, the United States and Britain.

The Yemen news agency Saba reported that Hadi met with Saudi Ambassador, Mohammed Bin Saeed Al-Jaber, American Ambassador Matthew Tueller and British Ambassador Simon Shercliff separately in the Saudi capital, Riyadh.

During the three meetings, the Yemeni president expressed his government’s keenness to achieve peace in the country, according to the principles and references of the Gulf initiative, the outcomes of the national dialogue and the relevant UN resolutions.

Hadi praised the efforts of the three countries to support Yemen and “end the coup and eradicate extremism and terrorism”.

The Saudi ambassador to Yemen handed Hadi an invitation from King Salman Bin Abdulaziz to participate in the Arab-Islamic summit at the level of leaders, which will be held in Riyadh, in the presence of US President Donald Trump, in late May.
