Sharaf stressed the importance of working to complete confidence-building measures to reach a peaceful political settlement and sustainable peace.

He pointed out that “it is noticeable that the other side is seeking, through the armistice, to create a state of at the same time no peace and no war, and to keep the humanitarian file on hold without finding permanent solutions.”

The Foreign Minister called on the German government to resume its activity in the capital, Sana’a, confirming its readiness to provide all facilities, privileges and diplomatic immunities.
