Chinese Ambassador to Yemen Kang Yong stresses on the importance of Yemen's role and participation in the Initiative of Belt and Road due to Yemen's significant geographical location and its natural resources.
In a statement to the Yemeni News Agency (Saba) Mr Yong said " Chinese side eagerly hopes that Yemen can practically contribute to building the "Belt and Road", achieve peace, stability and economic development".
He stated that the ongoing war Yemen has been experiencing as a result of the coup has prevented Yemen from practically contributing to establishing the " Belt and Road". As a result Yemen couldn't turn its potential natural resources into economic assets"
