Ansarullah Says Yemen Govt. Open to Talks If Aggressors Stop War, Siege

The chairman of Yemen's Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, confirmed the readiness of the government in Sana'a to negotiate with the forces of aggression after stopping the war and removing the siege.

“The Saudi-led coalition ‌‌‌wants a dialogue for the sake of dialogue, while the aggression and siege continue,” Al-Houthi said in a recent message posted on his Twitter account.

“There will be no dialogue with the continuation of the aggression and siege,” he added. “Today we tell them (the countries of aggression) the gate to peace is open, the key to dialogue is in your hands, and the situation is clear.”

Al-Houthi pointed to the objectives of the countries of aggression, saying no matter how long the nights and days go on, they will be the losers at the end of the day.

Supported by its regional allies and armed by its Western backers, Saudi Arabia has been waging a war on Yemen since March 2015.

An estimated 100,000 people have lost their lives in the Saudi war.

The war has destroyed Yemeni infrastructure, including a large number of hospitals and clinics amid an all-out Saudi blockade.
