Yemeni Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Abdulmalak Al-Mikhlafi, stated that, the Yemeni government is extending hands of peace for all Yemeni parties, to restore security and stability and stop bloodshed in the country.

In a speech at the first meeting of the negotiating teams, after the resumption of intra-Yemeni talks in Kuwait Saturday, Al-Mikhlafi said, Yemen's political leadership, represented in the Yemeni President, Prime Minister and pro-legitimacy political parties, are committed to peace.

The political leadership has instructed the negotiating team to partake in the "last chance" peace talks, according to the agreed main reference points, including the UN resolutions, the Gulf initiative and its mechanisms, as well as, the outcome of national dialogue, he said.

He hoped the new round of talks would lead to a real progress on the main files.

"Unfortunately, the confidence-building measures, agreed previously, have not been implemented, so we hope that discussions in this round would abide by a timetable, especially with regard to the issues of ceasefire, releasing of prisoners, ending the siege imposed on cities, and putting into effect the UN resolution No. 2016, related to the withdrawal of armed forces and handing over of weapons and restoring state institutions," he said.

He added that, the Yemeni government has a sincere desire to reach a peace deal, to end the Yemeni people's plight.

He spoke highly about Kuwait's hosting of the intra-Yemeni talks and the Amir, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and Acting Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah's great efforts, to create conducive environment for Yemeni negotiating teams to reach positive outcome.

He expressed gratitude for the Saudi-led pro-legitimacy coalition and the 18 countries which sponsor the talks for their support for peace in Yemen.

For his part, Ansarullah Movement Spokesman, Mohammad Abdulsalam, said that, joining the new round of talks comes, in respect of the previous agreements and in appreciation of the State of Kuwait, as well as, out of full desire for peace and stability in Yemen.

Abdulsalam added, the Ansarullah delegation seeks to reach a comprehensive political deal, to end the crisis in Yemen, through agreeing on a consensus presidency, a national unity government and a joint military and security committee, to prepare for the next phase.

He thanked Kuwaiti and Omani leaderships and people, for their unlimited support for the Yemeni peace talks.
