Diplomat notes Russia's ability to unblock various crises, including in Yemen

The diplomat stressed that Moscow maintains close ties with all parties to the conflict

MOSCOW, June 21. /TASS/. Russia is able to influence the processes taking place in the world seeking to unblock crises, including the Yemeni one, Russian Ambassador to Yemen Vladimir Dedushkin told TASS on Tuesday.

"Russia’s stance on the Yemeni situation is well known. It is characterized by our unique role in the Middle East, in particular, in Yemen," he said. "While maintaining close ties with all parties to the conflict, we, unlike, for example, our Western colleagues, are capable of exerting influence on the ongoing processes seeking to unblock the crises."

The diplomat recalled that Moscow is working with both Sanaa and the Yemeni representatives in Riyadh, holds consultations with its partners in the region, above all, with the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (CCASG). The CCASG member-countries, including Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, whose initiative to hold the intra-Yemeni consultations in its capital city we fully welcome play a special role in finding a solution to the Yemeni crisis," Dedushkin said. "Russia’s policy in the Yemeni affairs is commended both at the UN and in the region and is fully approved by the parties to the conflict.".
