Ansarullah leader: Yemenis demand peace, security and stability

Tehran, Sept 18, IRNA - Yemeni Ansarullah leader Abdul Malek Badr al-Din al-Houthi said that the Yemeni people seek peace, security and stability in their country, in Sana'a during a meeting with the UN Special Representative for Yemen on Monday.

Mohammed Abdul Salam, the head of the Ansarullah national delagation, posted on his personal page on one of the social networks the news of the meeting of the leader of the Ansarullah movement in Sana'a with Martin Griffiths.

In this meeting, the two sides spoke on providing conditions for future talks, as well as the plight of the Yemeni people under the economic blockade of the Saudi's coalition.

Abdul Salam added that the leader of the Ansarullah movement in the meeting emphasized that 'our efforts are in favor of the peace, security and stability that the Yemeni people are demanding'.

Abdul Malek al-Houthi said in the meeting with the UN special envoy for Yemen that the Yemeni people are defending dignity, sovereignty and independence of their country.

The Yemeni peace talks were scheduled to take place on September 15, under the supervision of Griffiths in Geneva, Switzerland, but Saudi Arabia's measure postponed the meeting by blocking the participation of Ansarullah delegates.

The Saudi coalition did not issue a license for landing of Omani plane for the transfer of Ansarullah's delegation, as part of the deal agreed by negotiation with the aim of curbing and blocking the presence of the Sana'a delegation.

UN special envoy for Yemen after the cancellation of the Geneva summit without announcing the next meeting stressed on the continuation of the diplomatic measures for restoring peace in Yemen.
