The Special Envoy of the Secretary General for Yemen, Martin Griffiths, welcomes reports of a reduction of hostilities in and around Hudaydah city. Griffiths stresses that de-escalation is a crucial step to prevent further humanitarian suffering, and to build a more enabling environment for the political process. “I call upon all parties to the conflict to show continued restraint. The people of Yemen have suffered enough. I am confident that the parties are ready to work on a political solution and am encouraged by the constructive engagement received from all sides. The logistical preparations are under way to prepare for the upcoming round of consultations. We are in a position to move forward.” The Special Envoy reiterates that the UN stands ready to re-engage the parties on a negotiated agreement for Hudaydah which would protect the port and preserve the humanitarian pipeline.
