Majali briefed Safadi on recent developments in Yemen and efforts to bring about security and stability and restore legitimacy in the war-torn country, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Safadi said that Jordan supports the "brothers in Yemen in various fields and all international forums until peace, security, and stability are restored and the unity of their land is guaranteed”.

For his part, Majali commended Jordan for standing by the Yemeni people. He said that the country is “in dire need” of Arab solidarity and support of the leadership council, the government, and the Yemeni people in the face of militias.

These militias, he said, "violate the land and humans, exploit resources, and serve foreign agendas to destabilize the region, neighboring countries, and territorial waters in Bab al-Mandeb Strait, as well as threaten maritime navigation."
