Fayez pointed to the “brotherly” and deep-rooted relations with Yemen, and said that Jordan, upon His Majesty King Abdullah’s directives, is keen on further cementing ties, based on mutual respect and a common interest to develop and advance cooperation in various fields.

He said that Jordan stands by Yemen and its legitimate government, and supports all Arab and international efforts to restore security and stability to the country, safeguard its territorial integrity and end the suffering of its people.

Jordan, he added, stresses the need for a political solution to the Yemeni crisis, based on the Gulf Initiative, the outcomes of the National Dialogue Conference and relevant UN Security Council resolutions, rejects Iranian interference in Yemen’s affairs and calls for adhering to the truce, and for opening roads and safe passages to Taiz.

“We, in Jordan, under the directives of His Majesty the King, put all our resources at the disposal of the legitimate Yemeni government, to help it overcome challenges and achieve security, stability and the unity of its people,” he said.

Alimi also commended the deep relations between the two countries, and thanked Jordan for its support of the legitimate Yemeni government and for hosting Yemeni people.

He stressed the importance of strengthening political, economic and security relations, adding that Jordan and Yemen agreed on the need to operate Yemeni Airlines flights from Houthi-controlled areas, and blaming the Iranian-backed militia for exacerbating the crisis by rejecting the renewal of the truce and attacking oil and other vital installations.
