The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen welcomed on Friday the truce in Yemen, saying it supports the UN efforts and arrangements to keep the deal.


“The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition welcomes the announcement made by the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen, Mr. Hans Grundberg,” said Arab Coalition spokesman Brigadier General Turki Al-Malki.


“The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition supports and welcomes the announcement made by the Yemeni government in which they accepted the ceasefire announced under UN auspices, and highly appreciates the efforts of the UN SESGY in announcing this ceasefire, that is in context with the Saudi Peace Initiative to end the Yemeni crisis and reach comprehensive political resolution, which was announced on March 2021, as well as the announcement made by the Coalition of a cessation of military activities in Yemen in response to the request made by the Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council,” he said.


Malki added that the Joint Forces Command supports all efforts and arrangements undertaken by the UN to sustain the ceasefire, and create proper conditions for Yemeni parties to kickstart the political process, and reach a comprehensive peace that achieves security, stability and prosperity for the people in Yemen.
