Prime Minister Mohammed Salim Basindwa has denied the news about the government’s resignation, saying the reports are false. He called on all Yemeni people from different political forces to think deeply about the homeland and commit to a peaceful coexistence with each other and to stay away from activities that threaten security and social peace.

Regarding accusations, which were claimed by the head of the Houthis, Abdulmalik al-Houthi, about corruption in the government of reconciliation, Basindwa replied that he promised to prosecute any corrupt politician, so those who have evidence of any corrupt minister should present their evidence to the Attorney General and try the corrupt.

“Stating accusations without specifying names or presenting evidence won’t help to eradicate corruption, but it will lead to increased hatred among people. We should be one hand in order to take the homeland out of this crisis,” Basindwa added.

Basindwa refused to comment about a meeting held between President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and the Houthis. He said it’s not the time to comment on this topic, but the government is doing its best to resolve the problem.
