Member of the national negotiation delegation, Abdul-Malik al-Ajri has said that the withdrawal of foreign forces from Yemen would expedite the political settlement, just as the withdrawal of Egyptian forces from Yemen in the 1960s accelerated the national reconciliation after the civil war back then.
Al-Ajri wondered in a tweet on Thursday about the reason that might push Saudi-mercenaries for peace, as long as “the countries of aggression bear responsibility for the expenses of the war and the expenses of the mercenaries.”
إنسحاب القوات الخارجية من شأنه ان يعجل بالتسوية السياسية كما حصل في الستينات،فانسحاب القوات المصرية عجل بالمصالحة الوطنية،لأنه مادام دول العدوان تتحمل مسؤولية ونفقات الحرب وفوقها نفقات مرتزقة الشتات فما الذي سيلجؤهم للسلام لكن اذا تحملوا المسؤولية فإن خيار الحرب لن يكون مربحا لهم

“If the mercenaries of aggression bear the responsibility and expenses, the option of war will not be profitable for them,” he added.
A few days ago, al-Ajri called on the Saudi-led aggression to withdraw from the war and to not bet on changing the presidential authority in Yemen.
Two weeks ago, the UN Special Envoy for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, announced a nationwide ceasefire for the first time since 2016, saying that two-month truce would be eligible for renewal with the consent of both parties.
