Al-Ajri: Withdrawal of Foreign forces would speed up political settlement in Yemen

SANAA, April 15 (YPA) – Member of the national negotiation delegation, Abdul-Malik al-Ajri said that the  withdrawal of foreign forces from Yemen would expedite the political settlement, just as the withdrawal of Egyptian forces in the 1960s accelerated the national reconciliation.

Al-Ajri wondered in his tweet on Thursday about the reason that might push Saudi-mercenaries for peace, as long as “the countries of aggression bear responsibility for the expenses of the war and the expenses of the mercenaries.”

“If the mercenaries of aggression bear the responsibility and expenses, the option of war will not be profitable for them,” he added.

A few days ago, Al-Ajri called on the Saudi-led aggression to withdraw from the war and not bet on changing the presidential authority in Yemen.

Two weeks ago, the UN special envoy for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, announced the nationwide ceasefire, for the first time since 2016, saying the two-month truce would be eligible for renewal with the consent of parties.
