Bahrain welcomed on Monday Saudi Arabia’s call on Yemeni parties to hold dialogue on Aden in order to ease tensions in the southern city.

Saudi Arabia had proposed hosting a meeting for the rival parties, which Manama said was an important step in prioritizing dialogue and reason to reach a peaceful solution to the recent unrest.

This initiative embodies the central role played by Saudi Arabia, led by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz, to bolster security and stability in the entire region, especially Yemen, said Manama according to the Bahrain news agency.

It cited Saudi Arabia’s leading of the coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen and its clear vision for a permanent political solution that preserves Yemen’s unity and independence, as well as its fight against the Iran-backed Houthi militias.

Manama underlined its constant support for Saudi Arabia and all of its initiatives that serve the interests of the peoples of the region and world.
