Sanaa gov says it has the capability to militarily cut-off Saudi ports
Sanaa stressed that Saudi Arabia's aspiration for economic development is not compatible with the invasion of a neighboring country.
The Deputy Head of the National Salvation Government for Defense and Security Affairs, Jalal Al-Ruwaishan, announced that Sanaa "have still not received a final decision in regards to the humanitarian situation following the Ramadan negotiations," adding that the government assesses that the other party "are aiming to buy time. "
"The ongoing negotiations with Saudi Arabia, mediated by Oman, remain attempts at achieving peace, and Sanaa has met them positively," he added.
"We hope that Saudi Arabia will realize that their projects of economic development cannot be coupled with the invasion of a neighboring country," Al-Ruwaishan said, noting that Sanaa has the capacity to militarily control traffic in and out of Saudi ports.
"Ever since the onset of the truce, the Yemeni armed forces started to restore their capabilities, and with the end of the truce we will return to the war status."
Earlier this week, Yasser Al-Hawri, the Secretary of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen, revealed that Yemen is preparing for a surprise to deter Saudi Arabia and make it regret it in the event that it continues to procrastinate and hesitate to complete negotiations and adhere to the entitlements of establishing peace in Yemen.
Al-Hawri stressed in a press statement that Yemen is arranging alternatives in case Saudi Arabia pursues the "one step forward, two steps back" approach in negotiations, as per the SABA Yemeni news agency.
