Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi said all those who have identified a clear position in support of the popular uprising aimed at ending the coup and the restoration of the state "will all be partners in the present and future of Yemen".

The Houthis retaliated to the Saleh advance by deploying four tanks on the streets of Sana'a in order to intimidate and terrorize the people and dissuade them from backing the former president.

The statement was issued after a meeting between Hadi and his advisers to form a broad national alliance in the face of the militias Houthi.

However, the leader of the Houthis, Abdul Malik al-Houthi denied in a TV address on Saturday that his fighters had stormed the mosque, attributing the reason behind the clashes to some militias that want to create chaos in Sana'a.

But Houthi rebels, his allies until this week, accused him of a "coup".

Tension between Saleh and the Houthis has been rising in recent months.

The capital Sanaa has been shaken by escalating in-violence this week between supporters of Saleh and the Houthis, with more than 40 fighters killed and injured and residents now fearing a new front in an already devastating war.

He says a new page must be opened in relations (with Saudi Arabia) and neighborly ties restored, putting an end to all (the animosity) that has taken place and that amicable relations can resume once there is a cease-fire (with the Saudi-led coalition) and their blockade of Yemeni ports and airports is lifted.

"We will deal with them in a positive way and what happened to Yemen is enough", he added.

However, the Houthis were less open to Mr Saleh's idea.

For coalition, former president betrayed Arabs by joining Huthi, a militia that emerged at end of last century to improve living conditions of ZaydĂ­ minority (a branch of Shi'a Islam that follows one-third of Yemenis) and that Saudi Arabia considers an Inst Rumeno of his rival Iran.

On Saturday there were reports of further fighting in Sanaa, with explosions and gunfire concentrated in the southern suburb of Hadda where relatives of Mr Saleh live.

In a statement on Saturday the Saudi-led coalition praised Saleh for "taking the lead" in the conflict. The Houthi allied themselves with the forces loyal to Saleh and have fought a devastating war against forces loyal to Hadi and his foreign backers.

The conflict and a blockade by the coalition has also left more than 20 million people in need of humanitarian aid, created the world's largest food security emergency, and led to a cholera outbreak that is thought to have killed 2,211 people since April.
