A delegation from the Yemeni Houthi Ansarullah movement has traveled to China to hold talks with senior officials over the conflict in the impoverished country exacerbated by the Saudi military aggression, PressTV reported.

At the invitation of the Chinese government, Houthi spokesman Mohammad Abdulsalam senior figures such as Hamza al-Houthi and Mahdi al-Mashat arrived in Beijing on Thursday to discuss resolving the conflict in Yemen with China’s support and to help build relations.

China has consistently made calls that the crisis in Yemen, as well as Syria, should be resolved through political dialogue rather than military means.
