BEIJING - China's Foreign Ministry said on Monday it had already evacuated 122 of its nationals from strife-torn Yemen to Djibouti, with 400 more still to go, as it repeated a call for a political resolution to the crisis.

Chinese warships have arrived and are taking out Chinese nationals across the Red Sea, though the ambassador remains at his post in Sanaa, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.

"We are in close communications with all sides, the aim of which is to ensure the safe and orderly evacuation of Chinese citizens," Hua said.

Riyadh announced last week that it and nine other Sunni Muslim countries had begun air strikes against the Shi'ite Houthi militia, who control Yemen's capital and are backed by Iran, Saudi Arabia's main regional foe.
