Dialogue with the Houthi rebels is still possible despite the ongoing Saudi-led military campaign against the Iran-backed militia and their allied forces of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, the Yemeni foreign minister said on Thursday.

Speaking ahead of an Arab League summit in Egypt where Yemen will dominate the agenda, he told Reuters: “Dialogue was necessary and it still is. (But) it has to be dialogue that is under the (principle) of the legitimacy of the president and the state and not legitimacy of coups and militias.”
