The intra-Yemeni consultations are set to kick off on Tuesday with the aim of reaching a political solution to the crisis in Yemen. They are being sponsored by the Gulf Cooperation Council (GGC) and will be held at its Riyadh headquarters.


GCC Ambassador to Yemen Sarhan Al-Minaikher said Sunday that all Yemeni parties are invited to the consultations.


"We expect everyone to attend without exception," he remarked in an interview to Asharq News television.


The Yemenis have sat individually with several international and United Nations agencies, but they have never sat together to directly talk to each other about their problems, he went on to say.


The GCC consultations aim to bring together all Yemenis so that they can come up with a clear roadmap that ends the war and leads to peace, construction and development, he added.


The Yemeni people "deserve a dignified life" and they are an integral part of the Gulf and Arab world, stressed Al-Minaikher.


The Yemenis are hoping that no party will skip the consultations, he stated.


The consultations will kick off on Tuesday and conclude on April 7.
