Russian Foreign Ministry Says US Has No Plans To Change Policy On Yemen
The United States is providing military support for the Arab coalition in Yemen and has no plans to change its policy, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday in a statement.
The Russian ministry said that the situation in Yemen had recently significantly escalated, especially near the port of Al Hudaydah, despite the US calls on the parties to the conflict to end hostilities within a month. The ministry pointed out that the United States continued to provide military support for the Saudi-led coalition.
"So far, everything indicates that the American side is not going to change its policy on Yemen, while the direct participants of the armed confrontation in this country continue to rely on the resolution of the existing differences by force," the statement said.
Yemen has been in a state of conflict, with the government headed by President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi fighting the Houthi movement.
