Chairman of the Houthi Supreme Political Council (SPC) on Thursday called the Saudi-led coalition to "engage in real, serious peace negotiations."

On the 30th anniversary of the Yemeni Unification Day, Mahdi al-Mashat also called the coalition to stop war, lift blockade, rebuild Yemen and exchange prisoners.

"While insisting on peace, we promise our people to confront escalation with escalation," he added in a televised speech.

"It's time for coalition countries to realize their catastrophically persistent blatant interference in the Yemeni affairs," the SPC chairman said.

Yemen has been racked by an armed conflict that broke out after the Iranian-backed Houthis had ousted the official government late in 2014.

The conflict escalated after a Saudi-led coalition intervened militarily in the country in March 2015 to reinstate the government of President Hadi, leaving millions of people killed, injured, or displaced.
