Foreign forces presence in Yemen unjustifiable

Tehran, The presence of foreign forces in Yemen is inexcusable, the Yemeni media 'AlMasirah' quoted head of Ansarullah delegation in Sweden peace talks as saying.

The foreign forces presence in Yemen is against Yemen's Constitution and the United Nations Security Council resolutions, Mohammad Abdul Salam said.

The Yemeni delegation has not become certain if there is real support for establishing peace in Yemen, he added.

He went on to say that the delegation will spare no efforts to realize any tangible measures for ending problems in Yemen.

He described as important prisoners swap, saying the list presented by Saudis on prisoners is not complete.

The agreement consists of releasing all prisoners of war and even those who are in UAE and Saudi Arabia prisons, Abdul Salam noted.

Commenting on UN offers as regard Al Hudaydah Province in western Yemen, he said the other side should be aware of the humanitarian aspects.

The intraYemeni talks which were earlier supposed to be held on September 6 postponed due to Saudis' sabotage.

The first round of the Yemeni peace talks were held in December 2015 in Geneva but the meeting produced no results.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of Mansour Hadi back to power and crushing the country's Ansarullah Movement.

Some 16,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudiled aggression.

The assaults of the Saudiled coalition forces have failed to stop the Yemenis from resisting the aggression.
