The Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh accused Saturday Al Houthi rebels of violating the cease-fire.
“The option of the State is peace, and the rebels are still violating the cease-fire,” Saleh said in a students’ graduation ceremony at Sana’a university.
The President repeatedly called the rebels to abide by the six conditions they accepted to stop the war in February this year.
“We call upon the rebels to abide by the six conditions and their implementation mechanism,” he said.
On February 12, the rebels accepted six conditions set by the government to end the 6-year old sporadic conflict. The conditions include the rebels going down from the mountains and handing over the weapons.
Saleh said Yemen would not allow to undermine its stability and security which are “important for the regional and international security” .
“We call for coordinating the efforts for confronting, terrorism, rebellion, and the outlaws (separatists ),” he said.
