MOSCOW, October 20 (Itar-Tass) — Representatives of the Yemeni opposition have got support of Russia, leader of the Yemeni coalition Mohammed Salem Basindwa told Itar-Tass.
After the meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday, Basindwa said, “We are satisfied with the meeting with the foreign minister. Our position found mutual understanding.”
“Russia will support the people of Yemen in order to ensure peace in the country as soon as possible. If the situation in the country is discussed at the U.N. Security Council, Russia will come in favour with the people of Yemen,” the Yemeni coalition leader stressed.
The Yemeni delegation also involves Secretary-General of the Yemeni Socialist Party Yassin Noaman and Abdul Wahab Al Ansi of the Islamist Al-Islah Party. Observers note that the opposition representatives are serious political figures in the country.
In the afternoon the Yemeni delegation will hold meetings at the Russian Federation Council.
Earlier this month, Lavrov called for convincing the warring sides in Yemen to come to an agreement.
“It is important to convince the sides to come to an agreement, which will allow both parties to reach national reconciliation and overcome the current deepest crisis,” he said.
According to the Russian minister, Russia and Djibouti actively cooperate in the settlement of the situation in Yemen.
“We cooperate to solve problems that Ethiopia and Eritrea faced. Today we’ve discussed the situation,” he added.
“We are concerned over the escalation of tension. We insist Ethiopian and Eritrean negotiators to comply with the U.N. Security Council resolutions on this aspect and the earlier reached Algerian agreements,” Lavrov stressed.
Lavrov also said Russia sought to provide military-technical assistance to Djibouti to fighting terrorism and piracy.
Lavrov said, “Enduring military-technical cooperation unites Russia and Djibouti. Servicemen from Djibouti regularly train at schools of the Russian Defence Ministry. Our specialists man helicopter and automobile technique, which is supplied to Djibouti.”
“There are prospects for the development of such cooperation. Russia wants our friends in Djibouti to respond to challenges for fighting terrorism and piracy,” the Russian foreign minister stressed.
