|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang's Remarks on Yemen's Houthi Group and General People's Congress Party Declaring Formation of "National Salvation Government"|
Q: It is learnt that Yemen's Houthi group and the party of General People's Congress declared the formation of a "national salvation government" in Sana'a. What is China's comment on that?
A: The Chinese side backs the legitimate government of Yemen. We do not approve of unilateral moves by any side in Yemen which could complicate the situation and which we believe will not help with the political settlement of the Yemeni issue. It is hoped that relevant parties in Yemen will carry on with their negotiation to address differences, and reach a balanced settlement all sides can accept on the basis of Security Council resolutions and Gulf Cooperation Council initiatives.
