SANAA, March 25 (YPA) – Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, a member of the Supreme Political Council, reiterated his call to stop aggression, lift blockade and air embargo before starting any dialogue, which stipulated that it should be “direct with the Saudi-led aggression countries.”
“The aggression and the blockade have hampered efforts to confront the Coronavirus,” he said, adding that Sanaa is ready to work with a joint operations room in Yemen to prevent the spread of the virus.
“The Yemeni people and their leadership are looking forward to peace and offering fair ideas in which there is no bias, out of the public interest of Yemenis,” al-Houthi added.
He continued: “Talking about any dialogue before the cessation of the aggression, the lifting of the blockade, the disbursement of salaries and the implementation of the confidence-building steps promised by the UN envoy previously.”
He stressed that dialogue should be direct with the coalition countries.
“The continuation of the blockade on Yemen, the closure of Sanaa airport and the ban on the port of Hodeidah hindering government efforts to prepare for the coronavirus,” he said.
He called for the release of all prisoners and the immediate start of the delivery of international relief aid in cash to the beneficiaries in Yemen.
