Hadi's letter sets out those conditions for a resumption of talks with the Zaidi Shiite rebels after the president's envoys last week came away without an agreement following three days of discussions with Huthi in Saada province, the rebels' northern stronghold.Huthi's followers want the resignation of the government, seen as corrupt, the cancellation of a recent fuel price rise and a broader political partnership.To support their claims the rebels mobilised armed fighters who have been camped out around Sanaa for the past week, while civilian activists have staged a sit-in near the interior ministry in the city centre.Plans for a six-region federation have been rejected by both the Huthis and the southern separatists.
