Alsahwa Net- Yemen Foreign Minister Khalid al-Yamani has said that the troop redeployment in Hodeida means that the Yemeni government, the Houthis and the United Nations have to be verify any Houthi pullout.
In remarks to Asharq Alawsat, he said that the concept of “unilateral withdrawal” does not exist in the Stockholm agreement or international law.
“If our forces were to carry out a withdrawal, the Houthi representatives in n the UN's Redeployment Coordination Committee (RCC) have the right to verify it,” he added.
Al-Yamani asserted that the government rejects unilateral moves that are not subject to the necessary monitoring standards that were set by UN Security Council resolution 2451 and 2452.
Meanwhile, the presidential advisor Abdul-Malik al-Mikhlafi has accused the United Nation of colluding with the Iran-backed Houthi rebels.
He noted that the UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths did not condemn the Houthi violations of the UN resolutions on Yemen, pointing out that such behaviors fuel the continuation of the war.
