Yemen's government supports the reopening of Sanaa international airport, shut down for years in the country's brutal war, but only under supervision, an official said Thursday.

"We are keen on the opening of Sanaa airport, and we demand the opening of Sanaa airport and we know that the Yemeni citizen should have the right to reach any country in the world through Sanaa airport," said Abdulaziz Jabari, a presidential advisor and member of a Yemeni government delegation at UN-brokered peace talks in Sweden.

"But... we are looking into who will supervise Sanaa airport."

The airport is controlled by Yemeni rebels, who have battled the government for nearly four years.
