Chairman of the Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council Rashad al-Alimi praised the Arab League for its support to Yemen's efforts in restoring its state and ending the coup by the Iran-backed Houthi militias.
Al-Alimi made his remarks before a plenary session of the Arab League Council at the level of representatives, which was held at the organization's Cairo headquarters.
The meeting was chaired by Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit and attended by permanent representatives of Arab League member states, including Saudi Arabia's Abdulrahman bin Saeed Al-Jumaa.
Al-Alimi hoped the Arab League's initiative to arrange an Arab and international meeting for the reconstruction of Yemen would move forward in coordination with partners in the Arab coalition, led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
He hoped that efforts would be exerted to reopen routes leading to the besieged city of Taiz and that the FSO Safer oil tanker crisis would be addressed to avert an environmental disaster in the Red Sea.
Al-Alimi is on a tour of the region that he kicked off last week and that has taken him to Kuwait and Bahrain.
He met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Cairo on Saturday.
