Moscow to work with UN on ceasefire in Yemen

The agreement reached in Sweden will not end the war in Yemen "right away," but Moscow will keep working alongside United Nations Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths to find a solution to the conflict, Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya (pictured) stated.

"It is obvious that the conflict spanning many years will not cease right after the agreements are reached which the UN special envoy worked out at the talks in Sweden," Nebenzya said, adding Kremlin "does not expect immediate results," but will work alongside Griffiths with the "aim of implementing the agreements as soon as possible."

Earlier, Griffiths praised the ceasefire in Hodeida which led to a notable drop in violence since its commencement.
