A prominent official in Ansarullah has welcomed the comment of Saudi Deputy Defence Minister Prince Khalid bin Salman on the peace initiative made by the President of the Supreme Political Council of Yemen, Mahdi al-Mashat.

“What Prince Khaled expressed towards the Sana’a initiative is a positive sign, and an addition to the voice of peace and reason,” Deputy Foreign Minister Hussein al-Izzi said on Twitter, referring to the Saudi prince calling the peace initiative a “positive sign”.

“We are pleased that we have been, and will continue to act from the position of the defender, not the aggressor, and that all our fighting and struggle have been and will remain for peace, ” he added.

Saudi Arabia’s vice minister of defence, Prince Khalid bin Salman, said on Thursday on Twitter that the kingdom viewed the Yemeni truce offer “positively”, echoing comments earlier this week by Saudi Crown Prince and de-facto ruler Muhammad bin Salman, according to Reuters.

“The Houthi proposal was a positive step to push for more serious and active political dialogue … Today we open all initiatives for a political solution in Yemen. We hope this happens today rather than tomorrow,” MBS said in a television interview with US channel CBS
