MOSCOW, April 15. /TASS/. Russia and Pakistan prefer a diplomatic solution rathen than a military option in the settlement of the conflict in Yemen, Pakistani Defense Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif, who arrived in Russia to take part in the Conference for International Security said.

In the words of the Pakistani guest, the defence ministers of the two countries stated that peaceful resolution should be found for the settlement of the crisis in Yemen. "We hope for Russia’s more active role in the achievement of peace in the region," Khawaja Muhammad Asif said.
