Hadi rejects UN plan, says it ‘rewards Houthis’
Yemeni President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi on Saturday rejected a peace proposal submitted by UN envoy aimed at ending the war
Yemeni President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi on Saturday rejected a peace proposal submitted by UN envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed aimed at ending the war in his impoverished country, official sources told Al Arabiya News Channel.
Hadi received Ould Cheikh Ahmed and refused to take the UN proposal handed to him by the envoy during a meeting held in Riyadh in the presense of Vice President Ali Mohsen Saleh and Prime Minister Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr.
The contents of a peace roadmap which the envoy has already presented to the Houthi militias on Tuesday have not been made public. However, Hadi said that the proposal is not based on the terms that were previously agreed for a political solution.
A statement on the government’s sabanew.net quoted Hadi as saying the roadmap “only opens a door towards more suffering and war and is not a map for peace”.
While previous peace proposals were “logical even if to a certain extent... the thoughts presented today under the name of a roadmap... only carry the seeds of war.”
The statement confirmed that Hadi refused to accept it, citing him as saying that the plan “rewards the militias while punishing the Yemeni people.”
