The statement said Al-Houthi welcomed the committee and stressed the importance of the national dialogue.
It also cited that the Houthi accepted the participation on the base of "healthy foundations that could end Yemen's crises and achieve the revolution's goals.''

The eight-member liaison committee to start a planned national reconciliation dialogue as part of a UN-backed power transfer deal.
The Houthi-led rebels have been engaging in severe sectarian conflicts for several months with Sunni fundamentalists in Saada and neighboring provinces of Hajja and Jawf that left hundreds of people killed and forced thousands of residents to flee their villages.
Yemen has witnessed sporadic battles since 2004 between government troops and rebels. The government has been accusing the rebels of seeking to re-establish the clerical rule overthrown by the Yemeni revolution in 1962 that created the Yemeni republic.
