Yemeni PM says Saudi initiative will reveal Houthis' intentions towards peace

DUBAI: Yemeni Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik said that a recent peace proposal offered by Saudi Arabia to the Houthi militia would reveal to Yemenis which party refuses to end the war.   

Abdulmalik, who heads the UN-recognized government in Aden, said the proposal puts the Iran-backed Houthi militia in a real confrontation with the people of Yemen. 

“[They] face a real confrontation with the Yemeni people and the international community, to expose those who reject all peace efforts and insist on the continuation of war,” he told Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper. 

He added that his government will not be an obstacle to any real and serious efforts for peace that the Yemeni people have been seeking. 

Abdulmalik also praised Saudi efforts to bring peace and end the war according to the three references of the locally agreed and internationally supported political solution represented by the Gulf Initiative and the UN resolution  2216.
