President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi chaired on Thursday an extraordinary and emergency meeting of Supreme Security Committee and National Defense Council in the framework of following up the latest developments on the ground.
The meeting touched upon attempts by armed Houthi group which aim to impede the political process based on the Gulf initiative and its executive mechanism backed by the UNSC resolutions in this regard.
Hadi at the meeting called to put Yemen's armed and security forces on high alert status to face all possibilities.
"The state will not remain silent before this critical threat of Houthis which harms all Yemen and not only the capital Sana'a, because Sana'a is the capital of all Yemen and a great number of Yemenis from al-Mahra to Sa'ada are living here,'' the President said.
The President pointed out that everyone at the national, regional and international levels welcomed the peaceful solutions of Yemen among the country hit by the Arab Spring.
"The National Dialogue Conference (NDC) in Yemen was combining of all political, societal and cultural components among them the Houthi group themselves.. the discussions of nine months of the dialogue handled all obstacles of Sa'ada and Southern issues through the NDC outcomes,'' Hadi said.
The President indicated that the GCC-Brokered deal confirmed on the Yemen's security, stability and unity and averting Yemen from dragging into a civil war.
"Houthi group has no right to be the trustee of the Yemeni people under an obsolete pretext and everyone knows that,'' Hadi said.
The President pointed out that the economic reforms in the country- which were approved by all political and societal components in the Yemen, were necessary otherwise the state's economy was about to collapse.
Hadi urged the security committee and Defense Council to be on high alert status and ready to face any threat that will harm the security and stability of the capital Sana'a with all possible means.
