 Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman affirmed his country’s rejection of the presence of “any armed organization outside the law” on its borders, calling on the Houthi group to cease fire in Yemen and engage in negotiations.

In an interview broadcast on Tuesday evening by the official Saudi media, in response to a question about Houthis’ rejection of the Saudi peace initiative, bin Salman indicated that the current crisis is not the first of its kind in the history of the two countries, considering that the Houthi’s control of Sanaa in 2014 was a “coup against Legitimacy and something illegal.“

 He stressed that “no country in the world accepts the presence of a militia on its borders or any armed organization outside the law of the state on the borders, and this is unacceptable to Saudi Arabia and the countries of the region and unacceptable to the legitimacy (the internationally recognized government) in Yemen.”

He pointed out that there is no doubt that there is a “strong relationship” between the Houthis and the Iranian regime, but he expressed his wishes that the group would take into account Yemen’s interests before anything else.
