Yemen’s former president Ali Abdullah Saleh says Saudi officials tried to bribe him in a failed attempt to secure his alliance against the Houthi Ansarullah movement.

The former Saudi ambassador to Yemen “came to me with a message from the kingdom asking me to stand by (Yemen’s former fugitive president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour) Hadi… against the Houthis,” Saleh said in an interview with al-Mayadeen television channel aired on Friday, adding, “They told us ‘we’ll pay you millions of dollars if you ally with us.’”

Saleh stated that he rejected the offer to show his support for “national unity for all political forces in Yemen.”

Ansarullah to Continue Talks with Int’l, Regional Sides to Soothe Crisis

TEHRAN (FNA)- Ansarullah Spokesman Mohammed Abdulsalam announced the movement’s continued talks and meetings with the regional and international actors to settle the crisis in Yemen.

Abdulsalam was quoted by Germany’s state news agency as saying that the movement’s members continue consultations with the regional and international figures in Oman on the developments in Yemen.

“Oman supervises these meetings and is willing to establish peace, stability and security (in Yemen),” he added.

A delegation from Ansarullah traveled to Oman last Saturday to study ways to reach a solution to the problems in Yemen.

A source said in March that Oman was making considerable diplomatic efforts to persuade the coalition of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia to stop conducting airstrikes against Yemen and return to the dialogue.

The source said that Omani diplomats were approaching the politicians from Persian Gulf states and beyond in an attempt to put an end to their hostilities as the conflict in Yemen is likely to have a negative impact on the whole region.

The former Yemeni president confirmed that there were some “administrative” differences between his political party and the Houthis during his time in power, but vowed that he will not “let go” of Ansarullah fighters despite the disagreements.
