Abdel-Malek al-Houthi, the leader of the Shiite group, was quoted by Yemen's official news agency as saying. "There has been indirect communication with Saudi Arabia over the past two days."

He said his group expressed keenness on resuming relations with Saudi Arabia on the basis of mutual respect and non-interference.

Al-Houthi said during recent visits to both Riyadh and Doha, United Nations Special Envoy to Yemen Jamal Benomar said that he found no justification for moving Yemen's national dialogue talks outside the country.

The six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council had recently suggested moving the talks to Riyadh.

The council said that it was making this suggestion at the request of Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.
