MOSCOW, February 8 (Itar-Tass) — Russia will continue to take steps to restore peace in Yemen, a Foreign Ministry official said on Wednesday.
The ministry reiterated that on February 7 Yemen received a large humanitarian consignment from Russia for refugees and temporarily displaced persons, who suffered from terror acts.
The Emergencies Ministry’s plane delivered to Yemen over 30 tonnes of different cargoes, including tents, blankets, food and other essentials.
“The humanitarian operation takes place in close coordination with Yemen’s authorities in compliance with the Russian government’s decree concerning the country’s assistance to Yemen in resolving social and economic problems and improving living conditions of ordinary people,” the official said.
“This assistance is also Russia’s contribution to joint efforts of the world community in providing support for Yemen that is experiencing a difficult stage of social and political transformation,” the official said.
“Yemen’s authorities in their official statement expressed gratitude to Russia for its timely and highly sought support,” the ministry said. “Russia plans to continue humanitarian and other assistance to friendly Yemen to restore peace, stability and ensure successful movement towards democratic development.”
