The head and members of the committee expressed their disappointments with the results of their discussions with al-Houthi. The committee will submit their complete report to the President in an expanded meeting of the State's senior officials, cabinet and Hadi's aides.
Also, the report will be reviewed before a national assembly that would be attended by members of Parliament, cabinet and Shura council, as well as leaders of political parties, monitoring bodies, and the national authoring for monitoring the implementation of NDC outcomes along with representatives of civil society organizations and women and youth sectors.
The President expressed his appreciation of the efforts made by the committee's members and their meetings with al-Houthi.

President chairs meeting of Supreme Security and Military Committee

August 24, 2014
President Abdu-Rabbu Mansour Hadi chaired on Sunday a meeting of the Supreme Security and Military Committee, where he reviewed the security situation in the capital Sana'a and Amran province in the light of the latest developments and security challenges imposed by Houthi armed group.
Hadi urged security and army forces to raise alert level status in the country to face any threat could be imposed. He said that the state is keen to preserve public tranquility and concern of lives of Yemenis.
"Today, the capital Sana'a is the home of 2.7 million people from all over the country and it is not the 1960s' Sana'a. Sana'a today is the capital of 25 million from all Yemen's provinces,'' Hadi said.
Hadi pointed out that there are probably hidden and suspicious agendas behind the banners and slogans raised by Houthi group which aim to manipulate the people's emotions, saying all actions inconsistent with the outcomes of the National Dialogue Conference (NDC) are a blatant challenge to the national consensus.
The President said that all Islamic doctrines have been coexisting in Yemen for hundreds of years and there is no incongruity or differentiation between them, noting that the entire Yemeni people has been stood as one group with the revolution, the republic system and the national unity and also stood together in times of crisis Yemen has experienced for a long time.
