TOKYO: (PanOrient News) Japan is closely watching the impact of America's designation of the Houthis as a terrorist organization, Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said on Tuesday.

“We need to see what impact it has on the implementation of humanitarian assistance as well as political aspects with the conflict in Yemen,” Motegi told a press conference in Tokyo.

“Peace and stability in Yemen is very important to peace and stability in the Middle East region as a whole, so at the Japanese government level, we have called on all the parties involved to implement an immediate ceasefire and as well as early resumption of talks for a political solution.”(PanOrient News)
