The sit-in committee in Mahrah province, which opposes the foreign occupation, affirmed on Saturday that the establishment of a permanent and comprehensive peace in Yemen would only be possible through ending all forms of external interference and the exit of foreign forces from the country.
“The sit-in committee welcomes the negotiations and agreements that we hope will lead to a real peace process in Yemen and work to end the humanitarian crisis, war, and suffering,” the official spokesman for the sit-in, Ali Mubarak Mahamed, said in a statement Saturday.
The statement stressed the need for the negotiations to lead to lifting the blockade, opening airports and ports, preserving national sovereignty, and the exit of all foreign forces from Yemeni territory.
The statement continued by saying, “The establishment of a permanent and comprehensive peace in Yemen will only be possible by ending every form of external interference and the presence of foreign forces in Yemeni airports, ports, and islands, and by ending its military bases on every Yemeni inch and land from Mahrah to Haradh and from Socotra to Mayon.”
The spokesman praised the important role and efforts made by the Sultanate of Oman to bring about peace and its relentless pursuit of rapprochement between points of view, resolving differences, ending the war, and bringing peace to Yemen. He added that “dialogue is the only way to reach a solution and a comprehensive agreement to end the war.”
The sit-in committee’s statement called on all parties to sit at the dialogue table to bring views closer, resolve differences, and end conflict and external interference in a way that ensures the primacy of the national interest, preserves sovereignty, and fulfills the aspirations of the Yemeni people.
