UNITED NATIONS, July 3. /TASS/. Yemen’s government has informed the UN Security Council members on the upcoming humanitarian pause in combat actions in the country, Russia's deputy UN ambassador Vladimir Safronkov has said.
The UN Security Council members met with the representatives of the Yemeni authorities late on Thursday. "The discussion was constructive, in general," the diplomat said.
"The Security Council members had a consensus that there is no military solution to the conflict and called on the representatives of the Yemeni government to work on restoring the political process with the goal of ending the military actions as soon as possible," he said.
Yemen's delegation was also told that the current vacuum in the country "continues being filled with terrorists."
"The Yemeni side fully agreed with these assessments and said that Riyadh [Saudi Arabia] should soon announce the humanitarian pause," Safronkov said, adding that the temporary ceasefire "is of critical importance" regarding the serious humanitarian situation in the country.
On Wednesday, the UN agencies announced the highest level of response to the situation in Yemen. This step is expected to contribute to mobilizing additional resources to provide the country’s citizens with aid.
