Leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement Abdul Malik al-Houthi said the way to a solution is available if good will was found.
Al-Houthi criticized the Saudi-backed delegates in the ongoing UN-brokered peace talks in Kuwait, saying they are “insincere” and “irrational.”
The Houthi leader said a solution to the Yemeni crisis would have been at hand if the Saudi-backed negotiating team had demonstrated goodwill and exercised rationality.
He said while negotiations are underway to reach a solution and put an end to Yemen’s conflict, Saudi Arabia is pressing ahead with its deadly military attacks against the country.
The Houthi leader blamed the “obstinacy of aggressors and pro-Riyadh mercenaries” for the lack of progress in the negotiations. He also accused them of indiscriminately targeting women, children and the elderly in Yemen.
Houthi said Ansarullah delegates have always followed a sound and reasonable approach during the course of the talks with the opposite side.
He also denounced the position of Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, the United Nations special envoy for Yemen, as “biased.”
Ansarullah’s leader pledged that the movement will remain steadfast in the face of Saudi Arabia’s military onslaught against Yemen. Houthi praised Ansarullah members and fighters from Popular Committees as he called for unity among the Yemenis.
Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
