US still far from peace: Yemeni Official

Quting from al-masirah, a member of the Supreme Political Council has dismissed the so-called peace initiatives presented by the United States to end the war in Yemen, saying such plans are not favorable since they fail to include the Yemeni nation’s demands.

“What US Special Envoy for Yemen Tim Lenderking has presented, through the mediation of the Sultanate of Oman, is far away from reaching a desired and realistic level,” Mohammed Ali Al-Houthi said in an interview with Russia’s RT Arabic television news network on Monday.

He added that Washington is still far from prospects of peace, and the latest US ceasefire plan is still a mere proposal and its text has not been produced yet.

On March 12, the US special envoy for Yemen said following a three-week trip to the region that a “sound plan” for a nationwide ceasefire in Yemen had been before Sana’a for “a number of days.”

Tim Lenderking said Washington is looking for Ansarullah’s response to its peace plan, but claimed that Ansarullah does not appear interested in a ceasefire at this moment, and is supposedly prioritizing a military campaign to take the strategic central province of Marib.

“I will return immediately when the Houthis are prepared to talk,” Lenderking said at the time.

Sana’a had earlier said the US proposal had nothing in it and merely represented the Saudi and United Nations vision. Yemen also said the plan does not include ceasing fire and breaking the siege, and it would only lead to a resumption of the blockade imposed by Saudi Arabia and allied aggressor states on the country.
