Russia hails Yemeni Gov., opposition's decision for dialogue to end crisis

MOSCOW, April 06 (Saba) - Russia welcomed on Wednesday the decision of the Yemeni government and opposition to tackle the current crisis via dialogue.

In a press conference held in Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov described such decision as positive, saying Russia has always called on Yemen and other countries to deal with their problems via dialogue.

The Russian Minister pinned hopes the Gulf Cooperation Council would continue its mediation efforts to settle down the situation in Yemen, voicing confidence that such efforts would definitely yield specific positive results.

"Reform issues in the Middle East and North African countries must be handled through negotiations not by using force", Lavrov said.
