MOSCOW, April 23. /TASS/. Moscow will closely follow the situation in Yemen after the Saudi-led coalition announced the end to its military campaign in the country, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Thursday.
"Saudi Arabia has announced ending the operation and launching the next stage," Gatilov said. "We, of course, welcome it - the end of air strikes. We will see how it goes," he added.
"The most important thing for us is that political process is launched in Yemen," Gatilov added.
On Tuesday, the Saudi-led coalition announced the end of a military operation "Storm of Resolve" in Yemen. Brigadier General Ahmed Asiri said "the alliance had achieved its military goals in Yemen through the campaign dubbed ‘Storm of Resolve’ and will now begin a new operation called ‘Restoring Hope’." "The mission will focus on security at home and counter-terrorism, aid and a political solution in Yemen," he added.
