He also thanked the contributions of all Arab countries, the European Union and the whole international community for achieving peace in Yemen.


"We are meeting today at the first summit that brings the Arab countries together with the European countries in the light of an international scene characterized by unprecedented changes in the structure of the international system, which directly affects the stability of our Arab region," Hadi said.

If not the sacrifices of the Yemeni national army and the Coalition the world have been would facing a real dilemma" by now.

He said that "the current developments and conditions in Yemen necessitate the continuation and intensification of EU-Arab cooperation to restore the Yemeni state, end the coup, enable the Yemeni government to carry out its constitutional functions, and press the Iranian Houthi militia to comply with the international resolutions, disarm and return to the political process."

He said that the Yemeni government had been welcoming and supporting the efforts of the UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy to Yemen and the rest sponsors of the political process, including the EU states, with a view to achieving a lasting and comprehensive peace in Yemen.

He said that the Government had consistently offered concessions in the different rounds of peace talks and manifested its serious pursuit of peace to spare the country further war scourges and challenges; diseases, poverty, displacement, extremism and terrorism, destruction child recruitments into the conflict.


He said the Yemeni government does not accept the option of failure because it will lead to more suffering. He said that the agreement reached with the coupist militia of in Sweden last December must be implemented. "We do not want to lose this momentum of international push for a sustainable peace in my country," he said.

He said that the government looks forward to the continuity of European and international support to its measures to rescue the country's financial institutions, support the Central Bank and help it build a reserve of foreign cash. With a view to enabling the government to ultimately be able to pay public salaries, mitigate the catastrophic deterioration in the service sectors of electricity, water, sanitation, education, and surmount the epidemics, famine, poverty, unemployment and displacement problems.in Arab affairs, especially in Yemen.
