Saleh, al-Thani talks on efforts to settle Sa’ada
SANA’A, Jan. 12 (Saba) – President Ali Abdullah Saleh made on Wednesday a telephone call with Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa al-Thani.
During the phone conversation, Saleh and al-Thani discussed a number of issues concerning fraternal relations between the two brotherly countries as well as Qatar’s efforts to bring peace back to Sa’ada governorate.
Saleh highly valued highly the efforts of Qatar with Houthi rebels to settle the governorate.
Saleh affirmed that the government has implemented all its obligations mentioned in the Qatari-broker executive program of the ceasefire agreement, pointing that the Houthi rebels have not abided by the program.
President Saleh briefed the Qatari Emir on the Houthi rebels’ breaches, saying that they are still continuing attacking citizens, disturbing security, refusing to deliver abductees and the looted military equipments and not removing their checkpoints that impede people movement.
Expressing appreciation of the Qatari efforts to convince the rebels to comply with the peace option, President Saleh affirmed that if the Houthi rebels do not observe what they have been agreed on previously, they would hold all responsibility for all consequences.
