Saudi Arabia on Wednesday praised the “positive results” of negotiations with Yemen’s Houthis after they visited the kingdom for peace talks.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry in a statement early Wednesday “welcomed the positive results of the serious discussions regarding reaching a road map to support the peace path in Yemen.”

“The kingdom continues to stand with Yemen and its brotherly people and … encourages the Yemeni parties to sit at the negotiating table to reach a comprehensive and lasting political solution in Yemen under the supervision of the United Nations,” the statement read.

Also, a joint statement issued by the United States and the foreign ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council, commended “Saudi Arabia’s sustained efforts to encourage Yemeni-Yemeni dialogue.”

“The ministers also emphasized their support for an inclusive, Yemeni-Yemeni political process under UN auspices that durably resolves the conflict,” that statement read.
