The Ansarullah movement in Yemen has rejected the idea of transferring to Saudi Arabia the venue of talks on the country’s ongoing situation.

Mohammed Bukhaiti, a member of the movement’s political council, made the announcement on Monday, underscoring that such a decision is in breach of previous agreements.

The rebuttal came after Saudi Arabia announced its readiness to host negotiations among the [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council member states over the ongoing political turmoil in Yemen.

The six-nation council had agreed to hold talks over Yemen in the Saudi capital of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s state news agency SPA reported on Monday, citing a statement by the Saudi King’s office.

Saudi Arabia had said the proposal for organizing the talks in Riyadh was made in response to a request by Yemen’s fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.
