Houthis warns Saudi Arabia: the coalition should accept our peace initiative

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The Foreign Minister of Yemen’s “National Salvation” Government has warned that if the Saudi coalition does not accept the peace plan we are proposing, we will have plans for an even more stark response.

“The initiative still holds,” said the “Foreign Minister” of Yemen’s “National Salvation” government, Hicham Charaf.

“We are patient. If they (Saudis) want peace, we will be for peace and if they do not want it, we will strike them with more force,” he added.

“We will give them [more] time even if they are killing our people,” the official said.

Saudi Arabia responded cautiously Saturday to the Houthi proposal. “We judge others on their actions and not on their words,” said Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir. He was questioned about the proposal made Friday evening by the president of the Supreme Political Council, Mehdi Machat; proposal to stop attacks on Saudi soil in return for the end of Saudi raids against Yemen. “We will see if they (the Houthis) will do it or not,” Al-Jubeir said.

“If the aggressor coalition does not accept the initiative of the president of the Supreme Political Council of Yemen, we have plans and scenarios to react,” warned Charaf.

“In times of peace, we will offer olive branches and in time of war, we will give a stinging and surprising response,” he said.

The Foreign Minister of Yemen’s “National Salvation” Government has stated that the Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs is in the United States and that contacts with the United States, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have been taken.
