Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik affirmed that the consultations between the government and Houthis in Stockholm proved the government's seriousness about peace.
Chairing a Cabinet meeting here on Sunday, he said the consultations proved to the international community that the government has not been and will not be a hindrance to any real effort for establishing peace based on the three internationally agreed terms of reference.
"We have reacted fully positively out of our sense of historic and national responsibility towards our people, but the other side (Houthis), they don't bother about the suffering and humanitarian disaster caused by their coup," he said.
He said that "what has been achieved with regard to the port city of Hodeidah (in Stockholm) is a first step, but what matters is ensuring that it gets implemented without delay. The United Nations, the UN Security Council and the international community have to assume their responsibility in this regard."
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Ahmed Al-Maysari presented a report on the security situation in the interim capital Aden, recommending a security campaign and mechanism to control firearms and armspossession in Aden and the neighboring provinces.
