Saudi Arabia supports ongoing efforts to reach international consensus on Yemen, the kingdom's ambassador to Yemen said yesterday.

Ambassador Mohamed Al Jaber said that Saudi Arabia's support for the Yemeni National Committee for a probe investigating human rights violations shows its commitment to international consensus on the war-torn country.

Meanwhile, Yemen's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdulmalik Al-Makhlafi also welcomed the draft resolution for Yemen, saying that the situation in the country necessitates human rights assistance by the global community for the government.

U.N. Human Rights Council approved a resolution Friday, urging a group of international and regional experts to observe and release reports about ongoing human rights violations in Yemen.
