Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has said that the success of any political solution in Yemen depends on the Houthi militias.

Jubeir’s comments came during a press conference with United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres who reiterated that no solutions exist in either Syria or Yemen other than political ones.


“Saudi Arabia did not want a war in Yemen but was forced to after the coup against the legitimate government by the Houthi militias’ coup,” Jubeir told reporters.

Jubeir also added that the Houthis have hardened against a political process in Yemen because of Iran's obstinacy and interference.

Meanwhile, Guterres added that the UN has seen the humanitarian aid distribution in Yemen improved significantly in recent weeks.

In Syria, the Saudi foreign minister said that there was an offer to send troops from the Islamic Alliance to fight against terrorism in Syria.
