Muscat (Debriefer) - The Omani Foreign Minister, Badr bin Hamad Al Busaidi, met on Sunday with Houthi negotiating delegation in Muscat, in a bid to bridge gaps between Yemeni rivals and pave way for sought peace.
The meeting discussed Yemen's political situation and course of ongoing negotiations with the international community on peace plan and political settlement, Houthi senior negotiator tweeted.
Oman exerts great efforts to support peace and alleviate humanitarian suffering in Yemen, Mohamed Abdul Salam added.
Muscat is currently playing mediation role between the Yemeni official government and Iranian-backed Houthi group, in order to reach a political settlement and end the 6-year-old war.
The UN and other international mediators pin hopes on Omani efforts to persuade the Houthis into accepting the Saudi peace initiative that proposed a nationwide ceasefire sponsored by the UN.
Under the initiative, Sana'a international airport would be reopened for limited flights and oil tankers would be allowed in Hodeida port, on condition that their tax revenues are deposited into special account allocated to pay civil servants.
