Ansarullah: Aggressors Trying to Impede Yemeni-Yemeni Talks
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The countries that mounted military attacks on Yemen are preventing the “Yemeni-Yemeni” talks from being held, an official with Yemen's Ansarullah movement said.
A political solution to the Yemeni conflicts can be reached through national dialogue among political groups in the Arab country and "foreign pressure" is the only obstacle to the talks, the unnamed official told Yemen's Saba news agency.
He further emphasized that the agreement between all Yemeni groups to hold the peace talks signifies that there is no opposition on their part and the aggression is the only obstacle to the talks.
The United Nations is planning to convene peace talks on Yemen in Geneva on Sunday, June 14.
The Arabian Peninsula country has been engulfed in turmoil since Saudi Arabia and some of its allies launched military attacks on March 26 without a UN mandate.
They have been carrying out deadly air strikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
According to Yemen's Freedom House Foundation, the Saudi airstrikes have claimed the lives of nearly 4,000 Yemeni people so far while more than 7,000 others have been wounded, most of them civilians.
