Riyadh Conference on

"Saving Yemen and Building Federal State"

The statement of the  Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to the Riyadh Conference on "Saving Yemen and Building Federal State" on 19 May 2015, delivered by His Excellency Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayani, the Secretary General of Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)

In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful,

Praise be to Allah and may peace and blessings be upon the Prophet,

His Excellency Brother President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi of the Republic of Yemen,

Brothers and Sisters, Members of Riyadh Conference,

May peace, mercy and blessings be upon you,

We thank Allah Almighty for helping you to participate in this conference, in your second country, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in response to the invitation of His Excellency President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi under the umbrella of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) for Arab States.

This conference comes at a historic turning point not for Yemen only, but also for the entire region, and you decided to riskily attend the conference as representatives of the brotherly Yemeni people to define the track which expresses the will of the dear Yemeni people.

As we congratulate you all and congratulate through you the brotherly Yemeni people on what you have accomplished of a great achievement represented in the outputs of this conference, I have confidence that what you have shown to the whole world of cohesion and determination to shape the future of Yemen will be paid off so the brotherly Yemeni people can enjoy security and stability.

Dear brothers and sisters, everyone knows well what the Kingdom and the Coalition's States accord of great keenness and attention to Yemeni affairs, emanating from their historical and fraternal ties that bind them together.

The Kingdom's hosting of this conference came in a historic and decisive stage, which has gained great importance of attracting various components and strata of the Yemeni people who met in this place, bringing with them the hopes of the people of Yemen in rapprochement and reconciliation to build the modern State, strengthen the foundations of peace and dialogue, and achieve security and stability in brotherly Yemen.

Dear brothers and sisters, the Kingdom and the Coalition's States have immediately responded to a request by the legitimate Yemeni government represented in His Excellency President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi to save Yemen and protect its people and legitimacy according to the principle of self-defense to protect the gains of the Yemeni people and their achievements included in the GCC's initiative and its executive mechanism as well as the outputs of the comprehensive national dialogue supported by Security Council's Resolution No. 2216, the matter which comes in the context of our commitment and interest in Yemen, its sovereignty and territorial integrity, and the preservation of its Arabism and independence in order not to be a source of threat and destabilization in the region and a hotbed of terrorist organizations.

In an extension of this role, the 'Renewal of Hope' operation was launched from which we are looking forward to contributing to the unity of our brothers and friends to achieve stability in preparation for the start of the development project in brotherly Yemen.

Emanating from our keenness on improving the conditions of residents of brotherly Yemen living illegally in the Kingdom, we have directed the competent authorities to correct their conditions and allow them to work to ease their burdens and enable them to earn their living with dignity as if they are among their families and brothers, and we will continue to provide relief and humanitarian aid and facilitate its access to the brotherly Yemeni people, and we have directed the allocation of the necessary funds to facilitate the return of stranded Yemeni brothers to their homes.

The whole world awaits the activation of the results of this blessed Conference, and your historical responsibility and faithfulness being shouldered by you necessitate the exerting of your utmost efforts to achieve the hopes and aspirations of the brotherly people of Yemen.

In conclusion, we assure you of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's ongoing stand by the brotherly Yemeni people to regain their natural position in their Arab surroundings.

I pray to Allah Almighty for your success and the achievement of security, stability and prosperity for brotherly Yemen.

May Allah's peace, mercy and blessings be upon you.
