Sana’a Demands Decisive Action for Peace and Rejects Stalling Tactics
Sana’a has renewed its clarification of the current stage in light of President Mahdi Al-Mashat’s warnings and messages to the UN representative. Both the head of the Salvation Government and his deputy for defense and security affairs confirmed that there is no practical impact of the promises made by the countries of aggression, led by Saudi Arabia, during the last stage. They also emphasized that the negotiated agreements are still theoretical, and that Riyadh must make a decisive decision regarding peace, as the rights of the Yemeni people do not accept evasion or stalling.
In an interview with Al-Masirah on Tuesday, the head of the National Salvation Government, Dr. Abdulaziz Bin Habtoor, said: “There is no tangible impact of the promises made by Saudi Arabia; rather, it is trying to evade the implementation of what it has promised and committed to.” Bin Habtoor added that Sana’a is adamant about implementing all the understandings that have been agreed upon, reminding that “the Yemeni people suffer daily” due to the ongoing aggression and blockade.
Sana’a considers the payment of salaries and matters related to the humanitarian file as a key to security and stability if the enemies are serious. The head of the government highlighted that there is an exchange of roles, not a real contradiction, between the countries of aggression, and that some differentiation is marginal and not a principal contradiction.
The message of President Al-Mashat through the UN representative came to inform all parties where they stand, whether it be the UN Security Council or Britain and the United States, the sponsors of the aggression. The president had informed the UN representative on Monday of the seriousness of the obstacles that the United States and Britain place in the path of peace efforts, warning that the repercussions will be global if escalation resumes.
In this context as well, the Deputy Prime Minister for Defense and Security Affairs, General Jalal Al-Ruwaishan, explained that “President Al-Mashat’s message confirms that the fire will not be confined to Yemen if there is a push for escalation.” He added in an interview with Al-Masirah that “President Al-Mashat informed the UN representative that the other parties should read the Yemeni message as they wish, whether as advice or threat.”
General Al-Ruwaishan said that there is a possibility that the countries of the aggression coalition in the region may have “belatedly realized that they got involved in aggression and want to review their accounts,” but he stressed that “the American and British sponsors are disturbed by any rapprochement.”
He also added that “the Saudi interest was not in launching aggression against Yemen, and now it stands at a crossroads to make its decision and direction,” referring to the need to stop stalling.
Regarding negotiations, General Al-Ruwaishan confirmed that “the agreements at the negotiating table regarding the humanitarian file are still theoretical,” indicating that practical implementation is the main criterion for measuring the success of peace efforts.
General Al-Ruwaishan considered it illogical for the countries of the aggression coalition to talk about being subjected to pressure, as they face the rights of the Yemeni people.
These confirmations and information reinforce the messages sent by President Al-Mashat to the UN representative, which clearly emphasized the need for a decisive decision on the part of the countries of aggression. These statements also confirm that Sana’a deals with negotiations realistically, prioritizes practical steps required for a fair peace, especially humanitarian steps, and that any talk or promises regarding peace will have no impact if they do not reflect on reality as required. This sends a clear message to the countries of aggression about the futility of relying on attempts to gain time, stalling, or circumventing the demands of the Yemeni people.
