China is withdrawing hundreds of citizens from Yemen with the help of Chinese warships, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Monday.

Hua told a daily press briefing that China has already moved 122 of its nationals from Yemen to Djibouti, an African country located across the strait in the Gulf of Aden from Yemen. She said the Chinese embassy in Djibouti is helping the Chinese nationals return to China as soon as possible.

Chinese navy spokesperson Liang Yang said on Monday that also on board the People's Liberation Army Navy warship Linyi were two non-Chinese employed by Chinese enterprises. ' It later emerged that they are from Egypt and Romania.

Linyi picked up the 124 people, including seven women and a child at noon on Sunday from Aden Harbor of Yemen and arrived in Djibouti Harbor eight hours later, Liang said.

"Chinese Ambassador Tian Qi and a necessary number of embassy staff are now holding their posts in Yemen," Hua said.

"They have maintained close communication with all relevant parties and made all-out efforts to help the remaining 400-plus Chinese in Yemen withdraw safely and in good order," she added.

The Chinese government places great importance on the safety of Chinese citizens and entities in Yemen, and it has wasted no time in withdrawing these citizens since the security situation in Yemen abruptly deteriorated on Thursday, according to the spokeswoman.

Yemen is currently suffering from political unrest and clashes between Houthi rebels and forces loyal to Yemeni President Abd-Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who has fled the country.

A Saudi-led coalition has been launching air strikes on Houthi positions in Yemen since Thursday.

Hua also thanked Yemen, Djibouti and other parties for offering help in the withdrawal of Chinese nationals.

This is the first time that Chinese naval combat ships have stopped at a foreign harbor to carry out an evacuation, said Zhang Junshe, a researcher with the People's Liberation Army's (PLA) Naval Military Studies Research Institute.
