United Nations Envoy Martin Griffiths Meets Yemen’s President

January 9, 2019

The war hit nation of Yemen is under severe threat of life and property. It is not new to mention the critical condition that the nation has been going through for the past four years. United Nations special envoy Martin Griffiths had a talk with the Yemini president at Riyadh in an attempt to bring peace and understanding at the port of Hodeida.

Yemen has been under waves of wars and attacks and this has almost snatched away every bit of its wealth. The country has already lost a huge amount of life and property and if some or the other measure are not taken at the earliest it will stand as the worst ever incident in history. The conflict has already brought the country at the brink of a devastating famine and this is also one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.

Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, the internationally recognized leader of Yemen, has showed his support for the effort made by Griffiths. In a social media statement Abdullah al-Alimi who is the head of the president’s office said that Mansour Hadi was committed to Sweden’s agreement and is ready to open for all humanitarian supplies and aids.

Hodeida that has been rebel held has been the major war line in the Yemen war. It was also supported by Saudi Arabia along with its allies launched an attack to conquer it in the month of June last year. The Red sea port on the other hand is a major entry point of relief aids and supplies to Yemen. These aids are particularly more important because the country is already hit by famine.

Griffiths is aiming to bring an agreement. He intends to push on the deals that have been agreed by Sweden, which includes the redeploying of forces from Hodeida too. Additionally, he also plans to bring both the sides together once again for a fresh round of peace talks.
