Yemen rebels grounded as peace talks on hold

AFP

SANAA: Yemen’s Huthi rebels, expected at UN-sponsored peace talks in Geneva with the government, remained grounded in Sanaa

yesterday citing fears they would not be allowed to return home if they left, reports AFP.

The Huthis, powerful armed tribes locked in a war with Yemen’s Saudi-backed government, have refused to take off from the

rebel-held capital unless the UN meets a list of conditions, which includes securing a safe return from Geneva to Sanaa for their delegation.

The Geneva talks, the first since 2016, had been scheduled to formally open Thursday but were put on hold, although UN envoy Martin Griffiths has held several meetings in the Swiss city with the government delegation.

The Huthis’ Supreme Revolutionary Council said Friday they were “increasingly suspicious that the coalition intended to insult” the rebels.

It accused the Saudi-led alliance fighting against them on behalf of the government of planning to strand the rebel

delegation in Djibouti, where their plane was to make a stop en route to Geneva.
