Washington welcomes the Saudi initiative and calls for a return to negotiations in Yemen

The US State Department welcomed the initiative launched by Saudi Arabia on Monday to resolve Yemen.

She called on all parties to seriously commit to an immediate ceasefire and to hold talks under the auspices of the United Nations.

“We call on all parties to return to negotiations through the United Nations mechanism and we welcome the commitment of Saudi Arabia and the Yemeni government to a ceasefire,” replied Galina Porter, deputy spokeswoman for the US State Department, when asked by Al Arabiya and Al Hadath.

For his part, the Republican US Senator James Risch welcomed the Saudi initiative for a solution in Yemen.

“I applaud Saudi Arabia’s serious offer to end the fighting in Yemen. This matter intensifies efforts by the United States and the United Nations to reach a comprehensive political settlement,” Riches said in a tweet.

And he said that “the Houthis have to prove whether they and their Iranian supporters are serious about achieving real peace”.

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud said earlier today that the kingdom has proposed an initiative for a solution in Yemen, including a nationwide ceasefire under the supervision of the United Nations and the reopening of air and sea lines.

And there are repeated reactions that welcome the Saudi initiative. Today, Monday, UN spokesman Farhan Haq said that the international organization welcomes the Saudi peace initiative to end the Yemen war, which is in line with the efforts of the United Nations.

On Monday evening, the Yemeni Foreign Ministry welcomed the initiative of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia regarding a comprehensive ceasefire in Yemen, opening Sana’a airport to a range of destinations, completing the implementation of the Stockholm Agreement and allowing ships of all kinds to enter while they are adhere to the Security Council resolution.

The Yemeni Foreign Ministry affirmed in a statement that this is “the same position that the government has expressed with all demands for peace and at all negotiating stations in its desire to alleviate the human suffering of the Yemeni people”.

She added: “We remember that the Houthi militia has adamantly and postponed all previous initiatives and has worked to prolong and deepen the humanitarian crisis by promoting our initiative to open Sanaa Airport, to loot relief supplies and refused to steal port revenue in Hudaydah to pay the salaries of employees in exchange for misleading the international community by creating crises at the expense of the suffering of Yemenis. “
