Hadi: Yemenis do not want peace ‘distorted by lies’
Yemen’s President Hadi said that the Yemeni people want a lasting and comprehensive peace plan based on ending the coup by the Houthis
Yemen’s President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi said that the people of Yemen do not want peace that is “distorted by lies” but rather a lasting and comprehensive peace plan based on ending the coup by the Houthi militias, Al Arabiya News channel reported.
Hadi reiterated, in a speech to the Djibouti parliament on Saturday, that he is committed to the Gulf initiative on Yemen and what was agreed during the National Dialogue 2014, as well as the Security Council resolutions.
He stated that resolution 2216 must be met, which defines the framework of the peace process in Yemen, calling for the Houthis and their allies to withdraw and hand over all weapons.
“Any ideas beyond those references are a waste of time,” he said, “we do not want peace that is distorted by lies, we want a lasting and comprehensive peace plan, based on ending the coup first.”
