Mohammed al-Houthi on Press TV: Yemen is committed to peace, but will continue to defend itself
SANA’A – The chairman of the Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, has emphasized on a number of principles that the Yemeni people have in dealing with issues at the local, regional and international levels.
He noted that the US-Saudi-Emirati aggression and its allies continue to commit crimes against humanity and continue to violate international and humanitarian law, in addition to their continued blockade imposed on the Yemeni people, which has caused the greatest humanitarian crisis in the world.
Mohammed Ali al-Houthi also said that the national delegation of the Ansarullah movement has agreed to sit at the negotiating table with representatives of the Riyadh-backed delegation during the latest round of UN-sponsored peace negotiations in Sweden, and struck a peace deal only because of the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the crisis-hit Arab country.
“Despite some violations by Saudi-led coalition and its allies, the peace deal continues to stand feebly, al-Houthi said an exclusive interview with Press TV television news network aired on Tuesday.
Mohammed al-Houthi, however, underlined that Yemeni army forces and allied fighters from the Popular Committees are fully prepared to respond to any act of aggression committed by Saudi Arabia.
Al-Houthi then stressed the need for a political solution to the ongoing Yemen conflict and an end to the atrocious Saudi-led bombardment campaign on the country.
He revealed the efforts of the Saudi-led invading coalition’s countries and their mercenaries are trying to obstruct the implementation of the Stockholm peace agreement through their numerous breaches of the ceasefire in Hodeidah.
He concluded that Saudi Arabia has failed to attain its goals in the war on Yemen and that the oil-rich conservative kingdom will never achieve victory against Yemen.
