Riyadh's agreement to resolve the Yemen crisis is welcomed by the GCC state. During the AL meeting, Almarar emphasized the need to ensure an active Arab role for a peaceful solution in Syria. He stated that a political solution is necessary for the Syrian conflict.
The UAE lauded the formation of the Executive Authority for Peace in Libya and reassured its compliance with other policies of the United Nations in this regard.
