In a response to the request of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi in his message dated on 20/04/2015, the countries of the coalition hereby announce ending of "Determination Storm" operation by the end of this day and beginning of "Restore Hope" operation which aims to achieve the following objectives:

1- A quick resumption of the political process in accordance with the Security Council resolution No. (2216), the GCC-sponsored initiative and the outputs of the comprehensive national dialogue.
2- Continuation of protecting civilians.
3- Continuation of combating terrorism
4- Continuation of facilitating evacuation of the foreign dependants and intensifying relief and medical assistance to the Yemeni people in the affected regions and allowing the international efforts to provide humanitarian assistance.
5- Confronting any military movements and operations carried out by Houthi militias and their supporters and preventing them from using the weapons they have looted from the camps or smuggled from abroad.
6- Establishing international cooperation, based on the ongoing efforts of the allies, to prevent, through accurate monitoring and inspection, the deliverance of weapons by air or sea to the Houthi militias and their ally, Ali Abdullah Saleh.
In this regard, the coalition countries appreciate the order issued by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud allocating a sum of $ 274 million for relief and humanitarian works in Yemen via the United Nations.
The coalition countries confirm their keenness that the Yemeni people would restore security and stability away from the foreign domination and intervention aiming at triggering sedition and sectarianism in order to achieve their aspirations and hopes so that Yemen would return to practicing its natural role in its Arab environment, God willing.
