Yemen: Rejects any unilateral measures & stresses the importance of applying the tripartite mechanism
The Yemeni government demands to implement the redeployment process in accordance with the agreed concept of operations, implement the tripartite monitoring mechanism, focus on completing each phase of redeployment before beginning any subsequent stages and confirm the implementation of the second phase of redeployment.
The Yemeni ambassador to the United Nations, Abdullah al-Saadi, said in his speech to the Security Council on Thursday that he doesn’t accept any unilateral measures and mock withdrawal by the Huthi militias, which constitute a clear violation of the text and the spirit of the Stockholm Agreement and the relevant Security Council resolutions.
He stressed the importance of opening the crossings and roads to facilitate movement and avoid restricting the movement of United Nations personnel in the city of Hodeidah.
He stressed the importance of correcting the process of redeployment and avoiding the negative aspects that have occurred during the last period regarding the first stage of the redeployment according to agreed concepts and tracks, removing the army, mines, and tunnels in the city of Hodeidah and the ports of Hodeidah, Salif and Ras Issa.
He pointed out that the Houthi militias and since the conclusion of the Stockholm agreement didn’t stop their violations and attacks against cities and public facilities and doesn’t respect international humanitarian law and human rights law, Houthis kept on launching aircrafts and ballistic missiles on the people of Yemen and Saudi Arabia and the targeting of international maritime navigation, pointing to the support of the Iranian regime to the Houthi militias to smuggle weapons and military technology what clearly indicate that the Houthis have no intentions to stop the war.
The Yemeni government called on the international community and the Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities to maintain regional and international security and peace, to take measures to hold the Iranian regime accountable for its destructive role in the region and to prolong the war in Yemen by supplying Houthi militias with weapons and missiles that threaten the security and stability of the country and the region.
