Russia lauds Kuwait's efforts for political settlement in Yemen

MOSCOW, May 6 (KUNA) — The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday commended Kuwait’s efforts for a political settlement in Yemen.
Kuwait is playing a positive role in the political efforts seeking a settlement in Yemen, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a press conference.
Kuwait has been hosting the UN-backed Intra-Yemen talks since April 21.
It is important for the Yemeni stakeholders meeting in Kuwait to be ready to work for peace and to take definite steps on the path, despite their differences, Zakharova said.
She also stressed the need for commitment to the ongoing ceasefire to create favorable atmosphere to push negotiations ahead.
Zakharova said Russia is intent to carry on with backing the Yemeni negotiations, as well as working with the concerned parties for a political solution to the crisis in the country in line with the UN Security relevant resolutions.
Meanwhile, Zakharova welcomed Russia-US cooperation to consolidate the truce in Syria.
This cooperation has been enhanced by establishing a joint center in Geneva to monitor the truce, she said in a reply to a question from KUNA.
Zakharova said that the situation in Aleppo is dramatic, laying the blame on terrorist groups for the escalation in the city to undermine the truce in place since February 27. (end) as.msa
