PM: Houthi failing Sweden Agreement confirms their unwilling for peace
Prime Minister Dr. Ma'eenAbdulmalik has confirmed that failing Sweden Agreement by Houthi militia and unwilling of implementing its commitments proves their evasiveness of accepting peace and surrender to people's will and implementing international resolutions.

" The Government accepted Sweden Agreement to avoid bloodshed of Yemeni people despite our understanding Houthis have accustomed to breach accords and agreements … a matter we currently see after a month on signing the agreement and did not implement anything whether withdrawal from the city and its ports or exchanging prisoners and the kidnapped," he said.
He confirmed that the real and the sole key to end this war triggered by armed and rebel militia is dealing seriously with its reasons by ending coup appearances and regaining the state institutions on the bases of the agreed upon political solution references.
He praised UK support to legal government and the Yemeni people and its peace efforts.
The meeting dealt also with current meeting between the representatives of the government and Houthi militia under the UN sponsorship for pushing forward means of implementing Sweden agreement on Hodeida.
