Al-Houthi responds to Security Council’s statement on “balanced solution” in Yemen

SANAA, Sep. 18 (YPA) – The Supreme Political Council’s member, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, has responded to a joint statement issued at the UN Security Council on Thursday regarding the solution in Yemen by affirming support for “a balanced solution in Yemen, but not an imposed solution.”

The joint statement was issued by the foreign ministers of Germany, Kuwait, Sweden and Britain and the representatives of the United States, China, France, Russia and the European Union, during the Council’s session on Thursday .

“The solution in Yemen must be a balanced solution, not the solution that the aggression (Saudi-led coalition) is trying to impose, to be the controller of it with the United Nations facilitation,” al-Houthi said in a tweet on Twitter, in reference to that the course of events proved that the United Nations lacks the independence of decision.

Al-Houthi summarized the “balanced solution” by saying “Yemen’s return to its normal state before the aggression is a vital matter for Yemenis.”

He explained that this includes the payment of salaries, the exit of the occupiers, the release of prisoners, and the reconstruction, and leaving the Yemeni people to run their homeland without any interference ”from the Saudi-Emirati war coalition and ambassadors of the ten countries.”

At the session, the UN envoy, Martin Griffiths, provided a new briefing to the Security Council on developments in Yemen, which was characterized by fallacies, as he avoided reference to the Saudi-Emirati coalition’s escalation and its crimes, and the intransigence of “Hadi’s government” regarding the files of prisoner exchange, salary payment, and the goods and fuel ships access.
