Yemeni Foreign Minister Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak held the Houthi militia responsible for the escalation of violence in Yemen.
The United Nations reiterated its concerns that Yemen is experiencing the world’s greatest humanitarian disaster.
Awad Bin Mubarak called on the international community to pressure Houthis to stop aggressions in the Marib governorate and the camps for the displaced, whose numbers have increased recently, more than 52% in need of food support.
He revealed the deal the American envoy to Yemen, Timothy Lenderking, talked about regarding the situation. It includes four items derived from the joint declaration put forward by the United Nations in April last year, including a comprehensive ceasefire and opening of Sanaa airport and the port of Hodeidah, according to the Stockholm
Agreement, and returning of political consultations.
He also confirmed in statements to the Russian agency Sputnik that the Yemeni government agreed to the points as a single, integrated, and indivisible package.
The Yemeni minister stressed that the ceasefire is the first humanitarian step and that the militia was the one behind thwarting any initiatives in the past. His words came when the United Nations announced fears of an increase in the number of displaced people in Marib.
It is noteworthy that between the end of April and early May, the International Organization for Migration and the European Union supported more than 2,000 displaced people with food bags in the region.
