Yemeni foreign minister rejects peace talks call from ex-president

Yaseen speaks during a news conference after the closing session of the Arab Summit in Sharm el-SheikhBy Ahmed Aboulenein LONDON (Reuters) – Yemeni Foreign Minister Riyadh Yaseen on Sunday rejected a call for peace talks issued by former president Ali Abdullah Saleh and said a Saudi-led military campaign against Iran-allied Houthi fighters opposed to his government had not ended. "These calls are unacceptable after all the destruction Ali Abdullah Saleh has caused. Saudi Arabia said last week it was ending a month-long campaign of air strikes against the Houthis, who seized large areas of Yemen, and that it would back a political solution to bring peace to its war-ravaged neighbor. "There will be no deal with the Houthis whatsoever until they withdraw from areas under their control," such as the Yemeni capital, Sanaa.

Yemen minister rejects peace talks call from ex-president

Yemeni Foreign Minister Riyadh Yaseen on Sunday rejected a call for peace talks issued by former president Ali Abdullah Saleh and said a Saudi-led military operation against Houthi militia had not ended. “These calls are unacceptable after all of the destruction Ali Abdullah Saleh has caused. Saleh, whose loyalists have been fighting alongside Iranian-allied Houthi rebels who toppled the central government, on Friday called on all Yemenis to return to political dialogue to find a way to end the country’s spiraling conflict. Yaseen was speaking after air raids, naval shelling and ground fighting shook Yemen on Sunday in some of the most widespread combat since the Saudi-led alliance intervened last month.

Fighting escalates across Yemen, first air strikes on capital Sanaa

Man is rushed to a hospital after he was injured during a crossfire between tribal fighters and Houthi militia in TaizBy Mohammed Mukhashaf and Mohammed Ghobari ADEN/CAIRO (Reuters) – Air raids, naval shelling and ground fighting shook Yemen on Sunday in some of the most widespread combat since a Saudi-led alliance intervened last month against Iranian-allied Houthi militia who have seized wide areas of the country. There were at least five air strikes on military positions and an area near the presidential palace compound in the Houthi-held capital Sanaa at dawn on Sunday, while warships pounded an area near the port of the southern city of Aden, residents said. The strikes on Sanaa were the first since the Saudi-led coalition said last week it was scaling back a campaign against the Houthis. Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter and arch Sunni Muslim regional adversary of Shi'ite Muslim Iran, feels menaced by the Shi'ite Houthi advance across Yemen since last September, when the rebels captured the capital.
