Yemeni Political Parities Start Consultations to form Gov’t and Presidential Council
TEHRAN (FNA)– The Yemeni political parties began their consultations on Wednesday to form the presidential council and government in Yemen.
“The move by the Yemeni groups to form presidential council and government comes after the failure of the Geneva peace talks due to the problems caused by Saudi Arabia,” Al-Mayadeen satellite TV network quoted informed sources as saying on Wednesday.
They underlined that the Saudis’ continued attacks further provoked the Yemeni political parties to look for a solution to put aside their differences to grow united against the aggressor state.
The Ansarullah leaders also held talks with high-ranking officials of Southern Yemen on Tuesday to discuss a ceasefire in the Arab country.
In a press conference after the UN-sponsored peace talks in Geneva on Friday, delegates of Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement slammed Riyadh for the intentional scuttling of the negotiations.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 91 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 4,717 civilians, mostly women and children.
