Saudi Arabia welcomed on Saturday an announcement made by the UN Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, for a truce in Yemen, under which all forms of military operations in the country and on the Saudi-Yemeni border will be halted.

The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the Kingdom supports the announcement made by the Yemeni government and the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen to accept the truce.

It also appreciated the efforts exerted by the Special Envoy to broker the truce, which comes in the context of the Saudi initiative announced in March 2021 to put an end to the Yemeni crisis and reach a comprehensive political solution.
