RIYADH (RAHNUMA): Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Yemen Mohammed Al-Jaber has discussed peace efforts with the UN’s Yemen envoy Martin Griffiths.

Griffiths praised Saudi Arabia’s role in supporting a peaceful resolution to the conflict, including speeding up the implementation of the Riyadh deal, the ambassador said in a tweet.

Al-Jaber also discussed with Griffiths the importance of quickly allowing experts to examine the stricken Safir oil tanker. Experts fear the ship, which is in an area controlled by the Houthi militia, could explode if it is not dealt with soon.

Al-Jaber also stressed the Kingdom’s support for Griffiths’s efforts to reach a compressive peace solution in Yemen.
