'Houthis fail to deliver on their pledges'
Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi on Monday stressed that the rebel Houthi militia continue to fail to deliver on their pledges and commitments and turned against the outcome of the National Dialogue Conference in collaboration with their ally, the deposed president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
Hadi was speaking during a meeting with US Ambassador to Yemen, Matthew H. Tueller. They discussed political and military developments in Yemen and the destruction and humanitarian disaster wrought on Yemen by rebel Houthi-Saleh militias.
Hadi noted that the US and other powers sponsoring the Gulf Cooperation Council Initiative for Yemen support his country to put an end to the current situation and the coup against the legitimate government.
He renewed commitment to UN Security Council Resolution 2216 and other pertinent resolutions on Yemen.
The US ambassador reiterated his country's support for Yemen and its constitutional legitimacy. He expressed the hope that the fast-paced developments and efforts would achieve peace and restore the country's legitimate government.
He noted that the war and the suffering being inflicted by the rebel militias have had seriously impacted the economy and the lives of ordinary Yemeni citizens.
