SANAA, March 16 (Xinhua) -- Yemen's Houthi militia announced on Wednesday that it is ready to negotiate with the Saudi-led coalition to end the country's seven-year civil war.
The Houthis said they "welcome dialogue with the coalition countries in any neutral country" which did not join the war in Yemen, Houthi-run al-Masirah TV quoted a statement by the Houthi militia as saying.
The Houthi militia did not provide further details.
Yemen has been mired in a civil war since the Houthi militia overran much of the country militarily and seized all northern provinces, including Sanaa, in 2014.
Saudi Arabia has been leading an Arab military coalition that intervened in Yemen in 2015 to support the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi after the Houthis forced him into exile. ■
