The governor of Marib Maj. Gen. Sultan al-Arradah received here on Tuesday the US ambassador to Yemen Matthew H. Tueller. They discussed a number of issues concerning the efforts to achieve peace, restore the state and put an end to the
Houthi coup d'état, occupation of state institution and atrocities the rebels have been committing against the Yemeni people.
Al-Arradah said the US diplomat's visit " has its indications and entails several important things; it may push us all toward fruitful cooperation with a crucial country like the United States which has an international leverage and seeks to extricate Yemen out of the current crisis."
He said he is hopeful that Tueller will present the real picture of the the Yemeni people's suffering, a consequence of the war and the holocaust that the Houthi rebels have plunged Yemen into.
He affirmed that permanent and comprehensive peace in Yemen lies in the implementation of the locally and internationally agreed upon three terms of reference for peace; the GCC Initiative, the outcomes of the National Dialogue and the UN resolutions on Yemen mainly resolution no. 2216. He said that any settlement outside these references would only be false peace.
Tueller praised the improvement of life in the province and the high level of cooperation between Marib's senior officials, the government and the Arab Coalition leadership.
He affirmed the US people's stance by the side of the Yemeni people in these difficult circumstances and the US support to the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
He renewed the US commitment to establishing a permanent peace in Yemen as per the terms of reference.
