[25/November/2019]

SANAA, Nov. 25 (Saba) - President of the Supreme Political Council Mahdi al-Mashat on Monday met with Special Envoy of UN Secretary General to Yemen Martin Griffiths and his team, in the presence of Prime Minister Dr. Abdulaziz bin Habtoor.

They discussed the latest efforts made by the UN envoy to reach peace and implement Hodeidah Agreement.

During the meeting, President al-Mashat confirmed that the Political Council and the National Salvation Government are keen to achieve peace and serious in ending the war.

In this regard, the president referred to all initiatives presented by Sanaa, including unilateral steps in implementation of Hodeidah agreement, the initiative to stop targeting Saudi Arabia with missiles and drones and the release of a large group of war prisoners unilaterally.

President al-Mashat affirmed that the other party did not implement any of its obligations, but on the contrary it is escalating its violations of Hodeidah agreement.

He explained that the aggression coalition has not taken any step even on the humanitarian side, noting that Sanaa International Airport is still closed to tens of thousands of patients and stranded, while the aggression forces and their mercenaries are stepping up the economic war aimed at starving the Yemeni people through the detention of ships and blocking the entry of food.

For his part, Dr. bin Habtoor stressed that peace needs a conducive atmosphere to be achieved, which does not apply so far to the behavior of the aggression states and their mercenaries, and the simplest example of that is the continued closure of Sana'a Airport.
