Prime Minister Dr Ahmed Obeid Bin-Dagher received Wednesday US Ambassador to Yemen Mathew Tuller.
Yemeni-American bilateral ties and cooperation, particularly in countering terrorism were elaborately discussed.
The Prime Minister voiced Yemeni government's and peoples' appreciation for the American's principled stance in supporting legitimate Yemeni leadership against Iran-backed Houthi militia's coup.
Bin-Dagher stated that grass-roots and reasons of the crisis in Yemen are political correlating to a militant militia's coup against official state's authorities, resulted in economic deterioration and ended up in the whole troubles the country has been struggling with.
He plainly blamed Iranian's spoiler role for destabilizing the entire region including Yemen where Iran has continued to supply Houthi putschist militia with ballistic missiles to target Saudi Arabia in flagrant breach of the International Security Council resolution 2216.
The Prime Minister said " the Yemeni government has devoted its efforts to get political solution to the Yemeni crisis on the basis of the three terms of reference. But Houthi militia has never been seriously seeking for peace because the decision is up to its backers in Iran…"
Bin-Dagher reaffirmed that the government is supporting the UN's envoy's efforts aiming to make permanent peace in Yemen, but the militia has continued to refuse to come to peace as it happened in Geneva's recent consultations.
For his part, the American diplomat reiterated his administration's support for Yemeni legitimate government. He stated that Washington is interested in maintaining Yemen's stability, security and unity.
Tuller also made clear that American administration is aware of Iranian's role in supporting Houthis and Iranian subversive activities in the region.
He noted that Washington completely rejects Iranian hostile acts in the region and labels Iran-allied groups as terrorists.
