A solution in Yemen's 2-1/2-year-old civil war will likely come through military rather than political means, the country's Saudi-backed president said, blaming the Iran-aligned Houthis of obstructing chances of peace. Speaking in New York on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi also told the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya channel that a plan to hand over control of the country's main port to a neutral party remained blocked by the Houthis and their ally, former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.The Houthis deny having significant ties to Iran, and say the coalition seeks to foment "destruction" inside and outside the region.Hadi said the Houthis still had a chance to join the political process if they agreed to hand over weapons and formed a party to help pursue national reconciliation.
