Prime Minister Ahmad Obied bin-Daghr and Ambassador of the United Kingdom to Yemen Simon Shercliff discussed on Wednesday efforts of realizing peace and UK support to Yemen in different fields.
Bin-Daghr confirmed government's keenness on realizing just and lasting peace on the bases of the GCC Initiative, the Outcomes of the National Dialogue Conference and the UN Resolution 2216.
" There will be no real peace as there are militias occupying the capital, controlling the state's institutions, carrying weapons against the state and killing, destroying and looting," said bin-Daghr, adding we want real peace does not bring Yemen back into clashes and killing for power and wealth.
He confirmed commitment of the outcomes of the National Dialogue Conference for establishing the federal state from several regions, as the shortest way for realizing peace and sharing power and wealth.
" The rebel militias (Houthi-Saleh alliance) has waste the cash reserve of USD 2.5 billion and controlled revenues, which amounted to YR 581 billion in 2016, and used them for what they call war effort," said the prime minister.
He called on the UN and the UK to practice more pressure on the militias to hand over all revenues to the Central Bank of Yemen in the interim capital of Aden to enable the government fulfill its internal and external commitments.
Bin-Daghr praised efforts of the UK and its Ambassador to Yemen for realizing peace in accordance to the three peace references, especially the UNSC's Resolution 2216, which UK played significant role of its issuance.
For his part, the UK Diplomat renewed his support to Yemen's unity and to the constitutional legitimacy.
He confirmed that Britain will continue support to efforts for realizing just and permanent peace and for restoring order to alleviate Yemeni people's suffering.
