Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ayman Al Safadi, discussed bilateral ties between Yemen and Jordan and the means to develop them with his Yemeni counterpart, Abdalmalik Al Mukhlaqi, yesterday.

In a phone call, Al Safadi confirmed that Jordan stands with Yemen, stressing the importance of continuing political work to improve the humanitarian situation in Yemen.

Al Safadi also emphasised the need to find a political solution in accordance with the Security Council's resolution 2216 of 2015.

In turn, Mukhlafi expressed Yemen's appreciation to Jordan for agreeing to host the UN Special Envoy to Yemen's office in Amman, in order for him to continue his efforts in restoring peace and security the war-torn country.

The decision to move Ismail Ould Sheikh Ahmed's office from New York to Amman was agreed upon by the Cabinet on Tuesday, a move that the Cabinet felt reflected the trust the international community places in the role that Jordan plays to achieve regional security and stability.
