Yemen’s Houthis won’t abandon peace efforts

Yemen’s Houthi movement will not walk away from peace talks with the United Nations and Saudi Arabia despite the U.S. decision to designate the Iran-aligned group as a foreign terrorist organisation, the Houthi chief negotiator told Reuters.

“These (peace talks) have nothing to do with the (U.S.) decision which will not limit our movements nor our international relations,” Mohammed Abdulsalam said on Thursday, adding this applied to both U.N. efforts and ceasefire talks with Riyadh.

“We will not stop our efforts to reach peace in Yemen … it is our responsibility to talk, to end the war and the blockade,” said Abdulsalam, who is also a Houthi spokesman.
