Sayyed Houthi said his group’s delegation to Kuwait peace talks has given difficult concessions, noting that the Saudi-backed side is refusing to compromise.
The Head of Ansarullah revolutionary movement, Sayyed Abdulmalik al-Houthi, said his group's delegation to Kuwait peace talks has given difficult concessions, noting that the Saudi-backed side is obstructing the process by refusing to compromise.
“In order to fulfill its obligations, Ansarullah delegation brought itself to giving some concessions, some of which were tough to give,” the movement’s leader said on Thursday
“But now, the opposite side has returned to square one and is demanding the submission of the Yemeni nation,” he added.
Peace talks have been underway in Kuwait between the two sides in order to find a solution to the country’s conflict.
“There are practical solutions to resolve the conflict and we have proposed many. If the opposite side opts for conflict resolution, we are ready [to cooperate], and if it chooses to keep up the invasion, we are also ready [to fight back].”
Houthi said resistance on the part of the movement is not a “political tactic” but is at the heart of Yemeni values and civilization.
Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
“The continuation of your crimes,” Houthi said, “will never dissuade us from resistance. No matter how much US support you receive, by God, the suffering that you impose on us will bring back but defeat for you,” the Houthi leader said in an address to Saudi Arabia and its allies.
He accused certain Arab regimes of colluding with Israel, saying they had chosen to fight Muslims.
