Al-Houthi confirms Yemeni people’s seriousness in pursuit of peace

SANAA, Member of the Supreme Political Council Mohammed Ali al-Houthi has confirmed the seriousness of the Yemeni people in moving towards peace, but with ignoring all the initiatives the Yemeni deterrence operations would continue to confront the aggression.

During his meeting on Wednesday with the Special Envoy of the UN Secretary General Martin Griffiths, al-Houthi referred to the initiatives presented in this framework, most recently the initiative of President of the Supreme Political Council.

He noted that all those initiatives have been ignored by countries of the Saudi-led aggression coalition over the past five years.

The Political Council's member denounced the aggression countries' demands for calming, while continuing their military escalation and carrying out air bombings in a number of provinces.

During the meeting, al-Houthi asked the UN envoy to convey a message to the aggression countries that the deterrence operations can be stopped only if the aggression stops, affirming that Yemen is currently in a phase of strength.

Al-Houthi called on the UN envoy to work on addressing the humanitarian situation in al-Durayhimi district and other areas and the release of prisoners of the army and popular committees in jails of the coalition forces and mercenaries.

For his part, Griffiths noted that the recent initiative of President of the Supreme Political Council has opened a door towards peace initiatives and assured the world that there is a real opportunity for peace. He cited the initiative to release 300 prisoners unilaterally this week.
