Qatar has welcomed the UN Secretariat’s decision to remove the Arab pro-legitimacy coalition in Yemen from the list of violators of children’s rights during conflicts and wars.



A Foreign Ministry source said the decision to remove the Arab coalition from the UN secretary general’s report on children and armed conflict came after the UN Secretariat concluded that the information the report was based on was inaccurate and not objective.

The source reiterated that member-states of the Arab pro-legitimacy in Yemen led by Saudi Arabia are fully committed to the international law and international humanitarian law, stressing that the main task of the coalition is to protect civilians, including children, the restoration of legitimacy, and providing humanitarian aid to the Yemeni people.
