DUBAI, Oct. 6 (Xinhua) -- Anwar Gargash, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Minister of State for Foreign Affairs in Abu Dhabi called on Friday via his twitter account the visit by Saudi King Salman to Russia's President Vladimir Putin an "impressive success."

King Salman started on Thursday a four-day visit to Russia, marking the first official trip by a Saudi monarch to Moscow.

Gargash said the visit by King Salman, "is a success for the Arabs. Saudi Arabia's pivotal role in the common interest and positive movement neutralizes the influence of neighboring countries in Yemen."

The UAE has been fighting since March 2015 as part of a Saudi-led pan-Arab coalition against Iran-backed Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen in order to support the government under President Abdu-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. Enditem
