Yemen will positively deal with any peace initiative stopping aggression: President Al-Sammad
SANA'A, Aug. 30 (Saba) – President of the Supreme Political Council Saleh Al-Sammad has affirmed that Yemen will positively deal with any peace initiative stopping the aggression against the country and preserving dignity of Yemenis.

In an interview with Reuters, Al-Sammad said peace initiatives inside the country are continuing but the warring parties supporting the Saudi aggression do not own their decision.

He praised the Central Bank of Yemen for its "mighty efforts" for economic stability at a time of conflict, criticizing attempts by exiled mercenaries in Riyadh to cut off the bank from the outside world.
"This is a sovereign institution supported internationally and is not subject to bargaining from Hadi or those with him," the president Al-Sammad said.

"We have not closed the door for peace or the door to negotiations," Sammad said.

"I believe there are serious international intentions to reach peace and we will do our best to take any chance to stop the aggression and lift the suffering from our Yemeni people."

Regarding new peace talks, Al- Sammad said: "We are willing to deal positively with any initiative that is likely to lead to ending the aggression and lift the siege."

However, President Al-Sammad said Riyadh had reneged on understandings reached earlier this year to observe a truce on the border in exchange for a cessation if air raids and preventing militants of exiled ex-president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi from attacking Yemen from its territory.

"We were surprised that nothing of the sort had happened," Sammad said. "It is natural, when air strikes continue and when we have up to 100 raids a day ... and when we have no planes or the kind of deadly weapons they have, that Yemenis have the right to defend themselves," the president said.

"We just want the Saudis to feel the kind of pain and sufferings that the Yemenis feel from the aggression," he said, explaining attacks from Yemen on Saudi territories. Yemen had no designs on Saudi territory, he said.

Al-Sammad said the United Nations and a group of 18 nations that have backed U.N. talks to end the war had failed to persuade Saudi Arabia to let our nation sell oil stored in the Yemeni Red Sea port of Ras Isa to buy medicine and fuel supplies.
