Riyadh: Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir said Wednesday that he sees the Yemen war nearing its end.
"One of the indications that the campaign is nearing its end is the fact that ... Ali Abdullah Saleh and Al Houthis are accepting UN Security Council Resolution 2216 and entering into talks the UN on that basis,” Al Jubeir told a press conference with his British counterpart in the Saudi capital Riyadh.
“We also see the gains that have been made on the ground. Most of Yemen’s territory that was captured by the rebels has been recaptured,” he added.
It was also Al Jubeir who announced the launch of an air campaign by a Saudi-led coalition against Iranian-allied Al Houthi militia forces in Yemen last March.
