Yemen’s foreign minister has outlined the conditions under which his government will hold talks with the Houthis, Al-Yemen Today reported.
In a meeting US Deputy Chief of Mission in Yemen, Ana Escrogima, today, Abdul Malik Al-Makhlafi said the current condition the people of Yemen live under cannot be tolerated or accepted.
He added that talks with the Houthis will only occur if the crimes against the Yemeni people and politicians halt, prisoners are released, the Houthis stop firing missiles and attacking cities and permit humanitarian access to Yemenis.
The internationally recognised government led by President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi is reaching out to political forces in Yemen to join an alliance with the Saudi-led coalition to counter the Houthis in the strategic Red Sea port of Hudaydah and the capital Sana’a.
