Chief diplomat of the Yemeni negotiating delegation and official spokesman for Ansarullah, Mohammed Abdulsalam, has said that he considered the so-called peace initiative announced by Saudi Arabia on Monday as “not anything new.”
Abdulsalam affirmed that Saudi Arabia’s presentation of itself as not part of the aggression is “misleading and inaccurate.”
“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is part of the war and must end the air and sea blockade on Yemen immediately,” Abdulsalam said in a statement to Reuters.
He pointed out that lifting the siege does not require a prior initiative, and “the bartering in this humanitarian file is a crime against an entire people.”
“Saudi Arabia should announce an end to the aggression and a lifting of the siege,” he stressed.
