Foreign Minister Yamani: al-Houthi's classification of a terrorist group is possible but may eliminate the possibility of a political solution


Yemeni Foreign Minister Khalid al-Yamani said the al-Houthi group's classification as a terrorist group after Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards was an issue, but it could cut the road to the political solution to the crisis and called on the Houthis to exploit the existing opportunity for peace.

In response to a question from the Sputnik  Agency to Minister Al-Yamani about the possibility of classifying the Houthis as a terrorist group after Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard:  "Yes this would be the next step, but we want to say that we want to reach out to peace and that we are classified--speak of the terms of international law-- the Houthis are classified As a terrorist organization, I should not negotiate, because no state that respects international law should negotiate with a terrorist organization, and we say to the Houthis that the chance for peace still exists, that there is an opportunity to be partners and not to be excluded. "

"If the transformation was done by naming all the arms of Iran in the region, such as the Houthi militias in Yemen and other militias operating here and there, this is a step that will break the path to any possibility of resolution and confrontation will be the only solution," al-Yamani added. Based on my conviction of international law, we still have an opportunity to find a solution. "
