The Yemeni government called for addressing the roots and causes of the war that were ignited by the terrorist Houthi militia, not just its results.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate Affairs in the Yemeni government, Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak, said during his meeting in Oslo with the Swedish special envoy to Yemen, Peter Semneby, that stopping the war and establishing peace requires focusing on resolving the roots and causes of the conflict, not just addressing its consequences.
The Yemeni official stressed that the current truce, specifically the lifting of the siege on Taiz, is an indication of the extent of the Houthi militia’s seriousness to accept a political settlement, warning that the failure to achieve progress on this humanitarian issue will obstruct the efforts being made by to launch the political process.
Bin Mubarak also stressed, according to the official Yemeni news agency (Saba), the importance of keeping the focus on the issue of prisoners, and that it be among the priorities of all actors in Yemeni affairs.
The Swedish envoy indicated his country’s continued support for Yemen and made every effort to contribute to resolving the crisis and establishing peace, stressing his country’s support for the unity, security, and stability of Yemen.
