On Thursday, Yemeni Foreign Minister Ahmed Awad Bin Mubarak welcomed the Kingdom’s political and humanitarian aid to Yemen.
In a joint statement issued after talks with Nasser Bourita, Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccans Abroad, on the sidelines of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS Ministerial Meeting, the Yemeni official expressed his country’s appreciation and gratitude for Morocco’s positions in support of legality in Yemen and the country’s territorial integrity (May 11 in Marrakech).
He also praised His Majesty King Mohammed VI’s decision to donate one million dollars to international solidarity efforts during the March High-Level Pledging Event for the Humanitarian Situation in Yemen.
Bourita, for his part, underlined Morocco’s support for Rashad Al-Presidential Alimi’s Leadership Council, expressing the hope that the council will be able to perform its missions in the best possible conditions, maintaining Yemen’s territorial integrity and sovereignty over the entire country.
He noted that the only way to end the conflict in Yemen is to reach a political settlement based on relevant international accords, such as Security Council Resolution No. 2216, the GCC Initiative and its implementation mechanisms, and the results of the national discussion.
The two Foreign Ministers agreed to strengthen coordination and consultation on a range of bilateral and regional issues, reiterating their commitment to improve the legal framework by signing a Memorandum of Understanding on political consultation between the two countries.
