The Sultanate of Oman has expressed its rejection of any move to designate Yemeni political movement Ansarullah as a “terrorist organisation.”
Oman’s foreign minister said this on Saturday, during a summit with the US diplomat for the Middle East.
“Yes, that issue was raised,” Badr Al Busaidi said, in response to a question on whether the potential blacklisting had been broached by David Schenker during a recent visit to Muscat.
“I don’t think there is a solution based on classifying or blockading one key player in that conflict or by not bringing them to the negotiating table,” the Omani minister added.
He stressed the need to support the efforts of the UN Envoy to Yemen, to invite everyone to the dialogue table, including the National Salvation Government, of which Ansarullah is a key member.
