The European Union welcomed the announcement of a new Yemeni government within the framework of implementing the Riyadh Agreement, considering it a “positive step towards a comprehensive political solution for the country.”
The European Union said in a statement issued by the official spokesman that the new Yemeni government will have “difficult tasks and will need to take important and courageous decisions for the sake of Yemen and all the people.”
In the statement, the European Union expressed its appreciation for the “coordination efforts made by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Yemen.”
The European Union urged “all parties to ensure the swift and full implementation of all provisions of the Riyadh Agreement.”
The statement pointed out the importance of “the presence of more Yemeni women in political positions and the effective participation of women in governance.”
He said, “The European Union is committed to Yemen’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, and will continue to support efforts aimed at reaching a peaceful solution to the conflict.”
“We encourage all parties to the conflict to engage constructively with the UN special envoy to reach a comprehensive ceasefire throughout the country and to resume political talks,” he added.
On Friday, President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi issued a republican decision to form the new government headed by Dr. Maeen Abdul-Malik and nominate its ministers (24 ministers) representing all Yemeni parties and powers, within the framework of implementing the Riyadh Agreement sponsored by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
