Yemeni President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi urged Sunday the U.N. Security Council to work on the implementation of resolution 2216 on Yemen.
Resolution 2216 was passed in April under Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter and imposes sanctions against the leader of the Houthi movement along with Yemen's former leader Ali Abdullah Saleh. It was unanimously adopted by the session, with Russia being the only member abstaining, without using its veto.
Hadi, who was speaking during the opening session of the three-day Yemeni dialogue conference, also said that the Riyadh-based meeting would be the basis for any dialogue or negotiations.
Speaking about the Houthis, Hadi said that Yemen’s dark forces who have killed civilians and turned Yemeni cities into ghost towns will soon be defeated.
He also said that while his government was working on building the country, the Houthis were working on destroying it.
In his speech, Hadi thanked all GCC states and specifically Saudi Arabia for its position on the Yemeni crisis.
In March, Saudi Arabia, launched airstrikes against Iranian-backed Houthis and fighters loyal to Saleh, in order to restore the legitimacy of President Hadi.
