Yemen FM: Kerry's statement "media ado", government not contacted on Muscat meeting

Yemeni Foreign Minister Abdul Malik Al Mikhlafi said that the US Secretary of State John Kerry did not contact the Yemeni government, and that his statement on an agreement between the Houthis and Saudi Arabia is "media ado and an action against peace."

 

In remarks to Aljazeera TV channel, the head of the Yemeni government delegation to the peace talks said the government did not know anything about Kerry's statement on a cease-fire and a formation of a national unity government agreement.

 

Kerry has earlier said in a press statement that the Houthi group and the Saudi-led Arab Coalition have agreed to stop hostilities in Yemen as of next Thursday."

 

Al Mikhlafi was surprised at Kerry's remarks noting that "the Yemeni Government is not concerned with any agreement that does not involve the United Nations and that is away from the agreed terms of references. The Yemeni government was not also invited to negotiate any of these issues, nor did it meet any local or international party."

"We were not informed about Muscat meeting; and any attempts to agree with one party is doomed to failure," added Al Mikhlafi.

 

"We want peace in our country, but the peace has its ways and specific references. Peace cannot be imposed.

Moreover, there are no indications that the other party has taken the initiative for peace, as they are still bombarding the cities and neighborhoods," added AlMikhlafi.
