Yemen’s Foreign Minister Hisham Sharaf on Wednesday praised the important role of the European Union (EU) in facing repercussions of the humanitarian disaster caused by Saudi-led aggression coalition in Yemen.

This came in the minister's meeting with the EU commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection, Christos Stylianides, during which they reviewed the activities and projects funded by the Union in Yemen.

Minister Sharaf pointed to the urgent need to increase the ceiling of European aid in an exceptional way to alleviate the suffering of millions of Yemeni civilians, particularly in the areas of health, drinking water, education and nutrition.

He noted that the Supreme Political Council and the National Salvation Government appreciate the EU's position that stresses that the solution in Yemen should be a peaceful political solution.
