MOSCOW, August 5 (Itar-Tass) - Russian diplomats in Yemen have taken no additional security measures in connection with the closure of American embassies and consulates in some Middle East and African countries amid threats of terrorist acts, a source from the Russian Embassy to Yemen told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“Proceeding from a specific situation in the country, the embassy traditionally maintains tightened security levels,” the source said. At the same time he said the temporary closure until August 10 of US embassies and consulates in the Middle East, including in Yemen, “has not affected the functioning of the Russian diplomatic mission”.
The Yemenite Embassy to Russia, for its part, has refused to comment on that.
