Riyadh hindering Ansarullah from attending Geneva talks

Tehran, Yemeni Foreign Ministry in a statement announced that the Saudi-coalition prevents Ansarullah delegation to participate in Geneva talks in Switzerland.

Yemeni Foreign Ministry on Wednesday said that the Saudi-led aggression coalition forces are putting obstacles to prevent the national delegation from participating in the Geneva consultations, according to a report by Yemeni News Agency, Saba.

We were surprised by the obstacles placed by the aggression forces through not granting a license to operate an Omani plane - as the safe and usual means to transfer our national delegation, Saba quoted Foreign Ministry as saying.

This was requested as part of the understanding and coordination and as usual in all negotiations and political consultations.

According to Yemeni media the ministry expressed the hope that the United Nations and the international community will pressure the aggression forces to grant a license to an Omani plane to transport the national delegation from Sana'a and to secure the delegation's return to avoid what happened in previous rounds, when the delegation stayed in Muscat for more than three months.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

The invaders have committed horrible war crimes against Yemeni civilians during the past three years.
