Yemen’s Deputy Prime Minister for Defence and Security Affairs, Lieutenant General Jalal Al-Ruwaishan, said he was surprised by attempts of the Saudi delegation to show its role as mediator.
In a news statement on Tuesday, Al-Ruwaishan stressed that “Sana’a’s conditions for peace are clear and do not need shuttle dialogues.”
He affirmed that the efforts by the Omani mediation are clear on the path towards peace.
“Sana’a’s conditions will not change. We consider the presence of the Saudi delegation to Sana’a a courageous step, and it must recognise the war on Yemen,” Al-Ruwaishan went on to say, adding that the Leader of the Yemeni Revolution has set clear guidelines for peace.
He pointed out that the coalition countries were supposed to take advantage of the opportunity to discuss the issue of peace, noting that negotiating to stop the war and lifting the blockade must be discussed with the coalition countries.
“International law prohibits interference in the affairs of states,” Al-Ruwaishan explained. “The coalition countries must realise that peace will only be achieved by stopping the war and lifting the blockade.”
