Riyadh - Saba
President Dr. Rashad Mohammed Al-Alimi, Chairman of the Presidential Leadership Council, received here on Thursday the US ambassador to Yemen Steven Fagin.
The meeting touched on bilateral relations between the two friendly countries, the latest developments in the Yemeni situation, and the commendable mediation efforts led by the brothers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Sultanate of Oman to renew the truce and launch a comprehensive political process under the auspices of the United Nations.
The Chairman of the Presidential Leadership Council praised the distinguished bilateral relations between the Republic of Yemen and the United States of America, and the American position in support of the government in various forums.
He also highly appreciated the US humanitarian interventions to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people, which was exacerbated by the terrorist Houthi attacks on oil installations and international shipping lines.
The Chairman of the Presidential Leadership Council reiterated the Council and the government's openness toward all proposed initiatives in order to achieve comprehensive and sustainable peace based on the terms of reference agreed upon nationally, regionally and internationally, and in a way that guarantees broad partnership without exclusion or discrimination, prevents the war from recurring, and ensures adherence to the constitution and the law, and respect for the international resolutions, public rights and freedoms, and good neighborly relations.
On the other hand, the President pointed out the intransigence of the Houthi militias towards peace efforts, including the continued refusal to renew the truce and alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people, the Houthi militia's continued military escalation, cross-border hostile operations, military parades with Iranian weapons, and threats to target shipping lines in the Red Sea and Bab Al-Mandab and the Gulf of Aden, as well as the militia's recent arbitrary measures against the Yemeni Airlines Company, and gross human rights violations that affected thousands of people celebrating the anniversary of the September 26 revolution.
Al-Alimi renewed the warning that any inaction on the part of the international community regarding the Houthi attitude would encourage those militias to persist in their threats to international peace and security, and make their practice of repression and violation of public freedoms a behavior that cannot be eliminated in the future.
For his part, the US ambassador affirmed Washington's support for the Presidential Council, the government, and economic and institutional reforms in Yemen.
