The United Nations announced Tuesday that the redeployment of the Houthis from Hodeidah ports was “in part as agreed by the Yemeni parties.  The United Nations has urged the two parties of the conflict in Yemen to “complete the current negotiations” to allow the full implementation of the Hodeidah agreement.

“The United Nations teams are monitoring this redeployment, which has been implemented, in part, as agreed by the two Yemeni parties in the first phase,” said a UN mission chief in charge of monitoring the agreement.
