Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said Monday that a delegation of Yemen revolutionary movement, Ansarullah, is holding talks in Riyadh aimed at finding a political solution to the ongoing crisis in Yemen.
“The Houthi delegation is in Saudi Arabia and the discussions are ongoing. I believe we have made good progress,” Jubeir told reporters, referring to Ansarullah.
“Talks with them are ongoing with the aim of finding a political solution for the Yemen crisis,” Jubeir said.
Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
“There is significant progress in negotiations, and we have good contacts with the Houthis, with a delegation currently in Riyadh. We believe that we are closer than ever to a political solution in Yemen,” the prince said.
The revelation came ahead of a UN-brokered truce slated to enter into effect on April 10, followed by talks in Kuwait on April 18.
