CAIRO (Debriefer)--Former Yemen's foreign minister Abu Baker Al-Qirbi on Tuesday hoped the reconciliation between the Gulf states will help find a permanent solution to the conflict in Yemen.
With the celebration of the Gulf leaders of their reconciliation and ending their dispute without foreign interventions, we in Yemen hope to reap the fruits of this reconciliation through ending the war and starting the reconstruction of the country, he wrote on Twitter.
"Yemen's stability and unity are a guarantee for protecting the national security of the States of Gulf Cooperation Council," he said.
Yemen has been devastated by an armed conflict which broke out after the Iran-aligned Houthis ousted the internationally recognized government in late 2014. The conflict escalated after a Saudi-led coalition launched a military operation in support of the government , causing the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
Al-Qirbi's remarks coincided with the summit of the GCC in the Saudi city of Al-Ula. Emir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad took part in the summit. It was reported a deal ending the Gulf crisis would be signed at the summit.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt boycotted and imposed a blockade on Qatar in 2017, accusing Qatar of supporting terror and interfering in their internal affairs.
