Ahmed Aboul Gheit, Secretary-General of the Arab League, considered the agreement of the Yemeni parties to adhere to a number of measures, including a ceasefire, and the implementation of measures to improve living conditions, as well as work to resume an inclusive political process, a “positive step.”

Jamal Rushdi, the official spokesman for the Secretary-General, said that Aboul Gheit believes that the agreement of the Yemeni parties is a new opportunity to respond to the aspirations of the Yemeni people and that it raises hope in alleviating the human suffering in Yemen, and in creating conditions conducive to launching a Yemeni-Yemeni political dialogue that leads to lasting peace. Stressing that the priority is to confront humanitarian crises, ensure the stability of the security situation in the country, and do not pose threats to neighbors.

The Secretary-General of the League called on all Yemeni parties to exercise the utmost restraint at this stage in order to make the agreement a success and overcome the serious challenges that threaten Yemen and the entire region.

Aboul Gheit praised the efforts made by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Sultanate of Oman, and the United Nations in supporting and accompanying the Yemeni parties to reach these results, with the hope that a comprehensive settlement of the Yemeni crisis that has been ongoing for a decade will be based on them.
