Member of the Supreme Political Council (SPC), the highest ruling authority in Sana’a, Mohammad Ali al-Houthi, commented on Saturday about the US’s statement on Yemen.
Al-Houthi, in an interview with Al-Mayadeen, said, “that Sana’a is waiting to convert the US President’s statement on stopping the war into action, expressing Anssarullah’s readiness for dialogue that serve in the public interest of the Yemenis.”
He affirmed that “Washington is supposed to stop the “aggression” against our country, describing the US President’s statement regarding stopping the war as just statements, which were expected to stop the war and to lifted siege.
Al-Houthi called on an end to the war and the siege imposed on Yemen, demanding the payment of compensation from the countries of Saudi coalition similar to the compensation that Kuwait obtained from Iraq.
He added there are not any contacts from the movement with United States far ever.
“What Saudi Arabia and the UAE have been doing in Yemen is the full-fledged terrorism, and the coalition of aggression had tried to wage a military war against us since 2004, but it failed, and we are ready to continue further,” He said.
Al-Houthi urged the Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz to stop the “aggression on Yemen”, and Saudi Arabia should turn to the peace of the brave, stressing that Anssarullah will negotiate according to the dictates of the Yemeni interest.
He considered that the political solution should be subject to the Yemeni people’s referendum.
According to Al-Houthi forces will stop bombing the targets of the coalition states if all the those countries stop bombing on Yemen, stressing the Yemeni people have the right to defend itself by using locally manufactured weapons.
