Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna thanks the governments of China and Russia, which helped in the evacuation.

“The situation is under control, we have information that for now everything is going well,” he said.

Russia air lifted 20 Polish citizens from the capital of Yemen, Sana’a to Moscow on board two aircraft, while the Chinese navy took four Polish citizens across a narrow strait from Aden to Djibuti.

Yemen has recently been invaded by a Saudi-led coalition set up to dislodge the Shia Houthis who have taken over the capital city. (an)
