 Member of the Presidency of the Southern Transitional Council (STC), Vice-President of the National Assembly for Control and Inspection, Mr. Lufti Shatara said that the Arab Coalition has the right to seek solutions with the Houthis and to hold talks with them on the future of the war in the north, especially after the failures of Yemen's legitimacy and all the northern forces to change the fact that the Houthis are in control of the north.

Shatara made it clear on his Twitter account that "the Arab Coalition will have no right to speak on behalf of the South as long as there are people who have the final say on key decisions."

He concluded his tweet by saying that "the people who achieved the victory will shape their own future, even if this involved the use of force."

It's worth mentioning that Saudi Arabia has invited the Iran-backed Houthi representatives to peace talks in the kingdom.

Saudi’s ambassador to Yemen, Mohammed al-Jaber, told The Wall Street Journal that the proposal for talks to end the five-year war remains on the table despite a flare-up in violence over the weekend.

The Saudi offer of talks in the kingdom was undertaken at the request of Martin Griffiths, the U.N. special envoy for Yemen, Mr. Jaber said.

He also added that since last year there have been daily telephone calls between officials of the Saudi-led coalition and the Houthis.
