Back in October, Sanaa government announced that negotiations attempting to extend the truce have reached a dead end - pointing blame at the Saudi coalition for it.
In a separate but relevant context, the government of Sanaa' set conditions to pay government employees and officials their salaries from oil and gas revenues in regions under the control of government forces.
The Head of the Supreme Political Council of Yemen Mahdi Al-Mashat stated on Thursday that a truce cannot exist if the other party does not meet the needs of the Yemeni people, which include paying salaries and ending the siege on ports and airports.
"There are many points of contention, the most important of which is fully lifting the blockade and aerial embargo imposed on the Sanaa airport and Al-Hudaydah port," sources said.
