Yemen's foreign ministry announced on Thursday the return of its envoy to Lebanon.

"The move is in response to Beirut's pledge to halt activities and practices offensive to Arab countries," the Yemeni ministry said in a statement carried by the country's state news agency.

The statement came after Saudi Arabia and Kuwait announced a return of their ambassadors to Lebanon.

Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati said Lebanon was "proud of its Arab affiliation.”
