GENEVA, 8 Sep — RIA Novosti. The authorities of Yemen consider that the delegation of Houthis which hasn't arrived to the interyemen negotiations to Geneva ignores efforts of the UN on settlement of the conflict in the country, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Yemen and the head of the delegation of the authorities Khaled Al-Yamani has said. © AP Photo/Hani Mohammed In Geneva have urged Houthis to enter peace talks in Yemen "They have shown full disrespect for the special envoy and international mediators" — Al-Yamani at a press conference on Saturday has said. According to the head of the Yemen Foreign Ministry, the delegation of Houthis has used "false excuses" to justify the nonparticipation in negotiations. Has answered a question of possible participation of the authorities in a next round of Al-Yamani that the government supports efforts of the UN on peaceful settlement. The interyemen consultations after a two-year break had to begin on Thursday in Geneva with the assistance of insurgents Houthis and internationally recognized authorities of Yemen headed by the president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi who is supported by the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia. The day before it became known that the delegation of Houthis couldn't take off from Sana'a as the coalition hasn't granted permission for take-off of the plane onboard which Houthis planned to take out seriously ill and wounded. Later the representative of the coalition has said that permission to flight of the plane has been given, but they were frightened to go. The lack of one of delegations hasn't prevented the UN special envoy Martin Griffiths to begin informal consultations with representatives of the authorities of Yemen with which he has held a meeting on Wednesday evening then his office declared renewal of negotiation process with the assistance of two parties on Friday. The war in Yemen between the government and the Shiite movement of insurgents Houthis "Ansar Alla" continues since 2014, since March, 2015 the coalition of the Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia is involved in it on the party of the authorities. Attempts of the UN to peacefully settle the conflict haven't resulted in success earlier.
