Yemeni FM: Houthis' intransigence impedes peace

ADEN, Jan 28 (KUNA) -- Yemeni Foreign Minister Ahmad bin Mubarak said Saturday that the defiance of Houthi militias and their non-commitment towards comprehensive peace and justice is the sole obstacle to peace in Yemen.
The terrorist Houthi militias and the Iranian regime alliance threatens not only stability in Yemen but also peace and security in the region and the whole world, bin Mubarak said during his reception of US Ambassador to Yemen Steven Fagin.
He renewed the legitimate government's commitment to achieving comprehensive peace and justice in Yemen to put an end to the suffering of Yemeni people due to the war waged by the Houthi militias.
Bin Mubarak stressed the importance of bolstering bilateral cooperation in all domains, particularly economy, development and security.
For his part, the US Ambassador Fagin said that his country attaches much attention to humanitarian programs in Yemen as well as to supporting the government efforts to achieve economic stability.
He also re-affirmed backing to the Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council and to the security, unity and stability of Yemen. (end) sns.ibi
