CAIRO, Aug. 4 (Xinhua) -- Egypt welcomed on Thursday the two-month extension of the UN-mediated truce in Yemen.

In a press release, the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Egypt hopes the extension announced by UN Special Envoy for Yemen Hans Grundberg could help find a permanent political solution to the Yemen crisis.

"Egypt supports all efforts aiming to reach a political solution that preserves the unity and independence of Yemen and meets its people's aspirations of security, stability, and welfare," the ministry said, while praising the UN efforts in this regard.

Grundberg said on Tuesday that the truce in Yemen will be extended for an additional two months from Aug. 2 to Oct. 2.
