SANAA (Debriefer)--The Houthi-controlled Parliament in Yemen's capital Sanaa on Saturday said it was freezing its membership in the Arab Parliament.
The speaker, Yahya Al-Ra'e, said the decision was made on grounds the Arab Parliament is taking the side of a Saudi-UAE coalition attacking Yemen and ignoring its responsibilities towards the suffering of the Yemeni people, according to the Sanaa-based Saba news agency.
Al-Ra'e accused the Arab Parliament of failure to end the six-year war and blockade on the Yemeni people.
Yemen now has two parliaments, one controlled by the Houthis in Sanaa, and the other controlled by the internationally recognised government.
The second parliament held its first session in the city of Seiyun in east Yemen last year during which Sultan Al-Barakani was elected as the speaker.
