Yemen’s former president Ali Abdullah Saleh called on Friday on all Yemenis to return to a political dialogue to end to the country’s conflict. A dialogue between Yemenis and Saudi Arabia, which has led a nearly month-long bombing campaign targeting the Iran-allied Houthi movement, must take place under the moderation of the United Nations in Geneva, he said.
