Yemen’s former president Ali Abdullah Saleh says Saudi officials tried to bribe him in a failed attempt to secure his alliance against the Houthi Ansarullah movement.

The former Saudi ambassador to Yemen “came to me with a message from the kingdom asking me to stand by (Yemen’s former fugitive president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour) Hadi… against the Houthis,” Saleh said in an interview with al-Mayadeen television channel aired on Friday, adding, “They told us ‘we’ll pay you millions of dollars if you ally with us.’”Saleh stated that he rejected the offer to show his support for “national unity for all political forces in Yemen.”
