Yemeni FM: Ould Sheikh Betrayed our Trust…Decisive Storm will not Stop

Jeddah-Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Abdul Malik al-Mekhlafi, who is also heading the government delegation at the peace talks in Kuwait, said that the meeting between Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud and Yemeni President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi witnessed discussing several topics including Yemeni lands’ safety and the return of legality.


Al-Mekhlafi told Asharq Al-Awsat that the Decisive Storm was launched for the sake of Yemen and the Arab and Islamic World, denying any intention to back off until legality is reached in Yemen.


Yemeni FM added that the Arab coalition in Yemen will prove its depth and strength in the coming period and will disperse all illusions about the coalition disunion.


Al-Mekhlafi was asked about the expected meeting with UN Special Envoy Ismail Ould Sheikh Ahmed, he said, “The UN Special Envoy betrayed the Yemeni government trust when he submitted the road map project without discussing it with the government delegation”.


Yemeni FM continued, “The peace talks launched in Kuwait were based on specific references and any commitment or road map should abide by these three references as well, including the implementation of 2216 resolution, withdrawal from cities and handing out weapons. These are essential for any political choice”.


Al-Mekhlafi revealed that Ould Sheikh will meet Yemeni President and government members following Eid al Fitr holiday and all topics related to the road map will be tackled.
