Al-Mashat: Truce status like ticking bomb, US does not want it renewed
The head of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen says that parties that benefit from the aggression are pushing to explode the situation, militarily and politically.
The head of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen, Mahdi Al-Mashat, confirmed on Monday that the American role in the truce file is malicious and dangerous, pointing out that Washington does not want the armistice to be renewed.
Al-Mashat considered that "the status of the truce today is like a ticking bomb; whereby were are not in an actual truce or in war."
He indicated that "the no-peace, no-war status is the result of the recent developments and the fact that some of the parties of the countries of aggression are convinced that they are defeated."
The Yemeni leader said that some parties of the countries of aggression need to "reconsider their stance, and we support them in that."
Al-Mashat continued that "we are facing parties that benefit from the aggression," and they are now pushing to explode the situation, militarily and politically.
He pointed out that the truce negotiations reached a level of good understanding until the US envoy arrived in the region and thwarted these efforts, stressing that the American envoy is trying to appear in the media as a dove of peace, while his movements in the region confirm that he is an ominous creature.
A few days ago, the Yemeni Ansar Allah movement accused Washington of obstructing peace in Yemen, stressing that the United States does not want to end the aggression on Yemen.
The movement also considered that "the US is trying to impede any sincere efforts to achieve sustainable peace" in Yemen.
It is noteworthy that the truce in Yemen ended on October 2, and Sanaa blamed the Saudi coalition of aggression for the arrival of understandings to a dead end.
