Marina Barsoum, , Monday 13 Aug 2018

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi is set to meet on Monday with Yemeni President Abd Rabo Mansour Hadi in Cairo, Egyptian presidency spokesman Bassam Rady said in a short statement.

No details have been disclosed on the issues El-Sisi and Hadi will be discussing in their meeting, which is expected to be followed by a press conference.

Egypt has continuously voiced its support for the unity and stability of Yemen, asserting that there must not be a military solution for the ongoing crisis.

Egypt has also stressed the need for a comprehensive political settlement.

Warring parties in Yemen are set to meet under the auspices of the UN in Geneva on 6 September to discuss a framework for peace talks and confidence-building measures in an attempt to end the more than three-year conflict.
