Tuesday, 09 March 2021_A member of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council says a cessation of the Saudi-led military aggression and its crippling naval and air blockade against the Arab country is the absolute prerequisite for the establishment of peace there.

‘Ending Saudi-led aggression, blockade key to lasting peace in Yemen’“Establishment of real peace in Yemen depends on lifting the [Saudi-led] siege, stopping aggression and fighting on all fronts,” Lebanon-based and Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network quoted Mohammed Ali al-Houthi as saying at a ceremony in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, on Monday evening.

He called on US officials to “abandon racism and arrogance, and embrace peace instead.”

Houthi further noted that the Yemeni nation has placed high hopes on fighters from Popular Committees, and strongly relies on them in the face of the Saudi-led military campaign.

Addressing Saudi and Emirati officials, he added, “You will not manage to break down our steadfastness, and we will not capitulate at all. We will eventually attain independence and establish sovereignty over the entire Yemeni lands.”
