LONDON, 20th July, 2016 (WAM) - Dr. Anwar bin Mohammed Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, has described the outcome of the quartet’s meeting on Yemen, held in London earlier today, as "positive and reflecting the high level of coordination and rapprochement among regional and international powers."

In a message he posted today on his twitter account, Dr. Gargash said the foreign ministers of the UAE, Saudi Arabia, the United States and the United Kingdom, agreed that the current stage is crucial and pledged support to international efforts aimed at resolving the Yemeni crisis.

He added that all parties reviewed peace efforts and agreed that key to political solution is the withdrawal of Houthi militias from the capital and other major cities.
