Saudi and Houthi Officials Meet for Yemen Peace Talks Mediated by Oman

HeadlineApr 10, 2023

In Yemen, Saudi officials are meeting with Houthi leaders for peace talks, mediated by Oman, in hopes of finding a path to end the brutal war that’s driven Yemen to a humanitarian catastrophe. The U.N. expressed hope the renewed momentum toward ending the conflict — including the recent resumption of ties between Saudi Arabia and Iran — could finally lead to a sustainable peace deal. This is chief Houthi negotiator Mohammed Abdul-Salam, speaking from the airport in Sana’a Saturday as the Omani delegation arrived in the Yemeni capital.

Muhammad Abdul-Salam: “Our just demands are: stopping the aggression completely, lifting the blockade completely, paying the salaries of all Yemeni employees from oil and gas revenues for all Yemeni employees, as well as the exit of foreign forces from Yemen, compensations and reconstruction.”
