Sayyed Houthi Meets with UN Envoy, Discuss the Hodeidah Agreement, Other Issues: Abdel Salam




The head of the national delegation, Mohamed Abdel Salam, said that Sayyed Abdul Malik Badr al-Din al-Houthi met today, Monday, 3 Sha’ban 1440 AH corresponding to 8/4/2019 with the UN Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffith.

Abdel Salam added said that during the meeting, the Hodeidah agreement was discussed and the need to accelerate its implementation away from the fabrication of obstacles by the countries of aggression outside the Swedish agreement.

In addition, he pointed out that the humanitarian situation is suffering from increasing injustice due to the unfair siege and arbitrary restrictions on trade. Adding that it is aided by the failure of the active role of the United Nations to remove them, the most important of which is the continued closure of Sana’a airport, the spread of diseases, and primarily, the detention of oil vessels and the attempt to impose arbitrary economic restrictions, which contribute to worsen the humanitarian situation that has been affecting all Yemeni citizens without exception.

According to Abdel Salam, Sayyed Houthi spoke of the abduction of women in the occupied territories by the forces of aggression, and the increase in these cases from time to time, without being condemned by the United Nations and its associated bodies as a grave violation.

Sayyed al-Houthi pointed to the criminal and continuous targeting of children and women in repeated and ongoing crimes because the silence applied helps cover the crimes of aggression and its continuation against the Yemeni people.
