Qatar has welcomed the UN Security Council resolution No. 2451 on Yemen, calling for a ceasefire and for activating the agreements and commitments reached in the Stockholm negotiations.
In a statement Saturday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the UN decision would alleviate the unprecedented human tragedy of the brotherly Yemeni people, if all parties are committed to it.
The statement reiterated Qatar's call to all parties of the conflict in Yemen to abide by international law and to enable international organisations to play their role.
It also called on the parties to assume their responsibility towards civilians by protecting them and to facilitate the means of protection and minimum living rights.
The statement thanked the United Kingdom for its effective role in the issuance of this important resolution, and renewed the position of the State of Qatar calling for a political settlement in Yemen "after the days proved that the military decision is not possible and that the continuation of the military option will only bring more woes and devastation to the brotherly Yemen and its people".
