Sources from the Yemeni government revealed that the legitimate government agreed in principle to a new version of the revised roadmap presented by UN envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed and will announce an official endorsement upon receiving the document.

The sources explained that the amendments were the results of extensive meeting between the ministers of the international Quartet in Riyadh, which includes Saudi Arabia, Britain, the United States and the UAE, and in accordance with the three references for a political solution to end the political military coup, which shall be initiated by the withdrawal of the militia and surrendering arms in order to reach a political solution.

The Yemeni president attacked the proposals promoted by US Secretary of State John Kerry to resolve the Yemeni crisis. Hadi described the proposals as “A redemption for the Houthis and ex-president Salah.”

The Yemeni President also stressed that bypassing and detouring the three references of the Gulf initiative epitomized in the executive mechanisms, the output of the national dialogue and the Security Council, will only lead to civic and sectarian tragic wars.
