      "Only the Yemenis themselves can determine the fate of their country, and Russia, which maintains contacts with all parties, is ready to contribute to this. We felt that Russia’s approach meets understanding and support in the Republic of Yemen," according to Lavrov.

      Russia considers it necessary not only to continue but also to intensify the international settlement efforts with the central role of the United Nations in creating conditions for the establishment of a stable dialogue with the participation of all political forces in Yemen.
