 On Sunday, the Presidential Leadership Council affirmed its readiness for peace, which is one of its priorities, stressing the need for the international community to pressure the Houthi militia to implement all its obligations under the armistice agreement.

This came during a meeting with a member of the Presidential Leadership Council, Brigadier General Abdul Rahman Al-Muharrami, the US ambassador to Yemen, Stephen Fagin, to discuss raising the level of coordination in regional security and combating terrorism.

Al-Muharrami pointed to the importance of putting pressure on the Houthi militia and the need for the international community to exercise all its powers to force the coup to implement all that was agreed upon, in terms of opening ports and main roads in Taiz and other governorates.

He explained that the legitimacy had agreed to open Sanaa International Airport and operate international flights, as well as allowing oil and commercial ships to enter the port of Hodeidah, provided that the financial return would be paid as salaries to employees, stressing that this never happened, but rather the money went to the Houthi war effort.

The Houthis also trade in the file of prisoners and refuse to release the 4 leaders covered by the Security Council resolution, led by former Defense Minister Major General Mahmoud al-Subaihi, Major General Nasser Mansour, brother of the former president, Major General Faisal Rajab and a number of journalists and media professionals, according to Al-Mahrami.

Al-Muharrami noted that the Presidential Command Council and the government are ready for a comprehensive and just peace in the event that Al-Houthi complies with the language of dialogue and negotiations instead of killing, destruction and devastation, calling on the militias to seize the opportunity of the Eid days, arbitrate reason and engage in negotiations for the people who pay the price of this war.

While stressing the work according to national controls based on the importance of providing services to citizens and establishing security and stability, he praised the Saudi and Emirati support for the Yemeni people and their legitimate leadership, including the economic packages announced by Prince Khalid bin Salman, Saudi Deputy Defense Minister.

He said: "This fraternal aid will undoubtedly revive the economic and service situation of the citizen."

The commander of the Giants Forces stressed the importance of securing international navigation, stressing the partnership of the Presidential Command Council and the basic Yemeni government, along with America and the international community, to effectively contribute to combating terrorism in all its forms.
