Yemeni Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik warned on Thursday from any Houthi attempts to violate the three references, adding that such efforts lead to the disruption of Yemen and threaten local and international stability in the region.

The Yemeni PM was speaking during his meeting with the Russian Ambassador to Yemen Vladimir Didushkin in Riyadh on Thursday.

The Yemeni news agency, Saba, quoted Abdulmalik as stressing that the implementation of the Stockholm Agreement and the vision of a comprehensive settlement of the political solution in Yemen should be based on the three internationally accepted and internationally endorsed references represented by the Gulf Initiative and its Executive Mechanism, the outcomes of the National Dialogue Conference and the relevant UN Security Council Resolution 2216.

The Prime Minister also expressed his confidence in the international community's adherence to these references and its continued support, considering that bypassing them will lead to the disruption of Yemen.

He discussed with the Russian diplomat developments on the national scene, including Houthis’ continuous rejection of all peace proposals and procrastination in the implementation of the Swedish agreement, in addition to the repeated escalation of the Iranian regime and their threat to international navigation.

For his part, the Russian ambassador renewed his country's support for the legitimate government and the political solution in Yemen under the auspices of the United Nations.

Official Yemeni sources said that during his last visit to Aden, the Ambassador observed a progress in the liberated areas, praising the legitimate government for its efforts to alleviate humanitarian conditions by paying salaries and delivering aids.
