Foreign Minister Yamani: International Quartet to hold its next meeting in Aden


Foreign Minister Khalid al-Yamani said the next meeting of the International Quartet for Yemen will be in the interim capital of Aden.

The  "Arab independent" newspaper quoted Minister Yamani as saying, "The quartet is going to hold the next meeting in Aden," which he said would be next Ramadan,

The Yemeni minister noted that the meeting in Aden would represent a "support for the legitimacy that makes great efforts to come on the ground, to touch on the needs of citizens, to pay salaries and to conduct services."

The quartet of Yemen is made up of Saudi Arabia, UAE, the United States and Britain, and its meetings are held continuously without inviting the Yemeni foreign Minister or any government official to participate in its meetings.

Commenting on the quartet's meeting in London last Friday, the Yemeni foreign minister said, "the London meeting came out with important messages, foremost among which is the impossibility of going to any political talks before the implementation of the Stockholm Agreement, regarding the files of Hodeidah, prisoners, detainees and the city of Taiz."

According to Al-Yamani, the Stockholm accord enters its fifth month without implementation, because of the procrastinator of the Houthis, "who declare their support for the agreement, and then stop implementing it."

He said the London meeting was in a position against "Iran's attempts to destabilize Yemen, by supporting the Houthis with ballistic missiles they are firing on civilians in Yemen and Saudi Arabia, as well as supporting Iranian-made drones."
