“We are deeply concerned about the outcome of the ongoing hostilities in this country [Yemen], there are a large number of dead and wounded, and the destruction of a large part of the infrastructure in the cities, including health facilities,” Lavrov said in an interview with the Ethiopian newspaper “Reportor”. , We still believe that ending the long-standing internal conflict with the participation of the Arab Coalition is possible only through dialogue and mutual consideration of the interests of all political forces in Yemen. ”
Lavrov added:
We intend to continue to contribute to this crisis since the beginning of the conflict inside Yemen and to regularly communicate with all parties to the conflict with those who adopt a peaceful path. At the same time, we are taking practical steps to provide humanitarian assistance to the suffering population.
