“The Turkish Embassy will restart its activities when security, public order, national dialogue and reconciliation based on legitimate state authority are established in Yemen,” said the Ambassador.

Turkey has reiterated a travel warning for its citizens, which the Foreign Ministry issued on Saturday, calling on its citizens to immediately leave the country.
