Griffiths invites government and Houthis to ceasefire-meeting

Alsahwa Net- The United Nations (UN) Special Envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths said on Thursday that he was pleased by positive responses by the government and the Houthis to the Secretary General’s call for a ceasefire.

He expected the government and the Houthis to adhere to their words and put the interest of the Yemeni people above all.

“I've been inspired by the outpouring of calls for peace by Yemenis from across the political and social spectrum including Yemeni women, youth and tribal leaders,” said Griffith.

“The message to the political leaderships is clear: stop the war now and fight the common enemy; COVID19,” he added.

He reaffirmed that message by the Yemeni peace activists demanded cessation of military confrontations as an instant measure to protect Yemenis from the spreading of the virus.

They also appealed to leaders across Yemen come together to prevent and respond to any major outbreak of the COVID-19, said Griffiths.

He invited parties to the conflict to “an urgent meeting to discuss how to translate their stated commitments to the Yemeni people into practice.”

"I hope that the parties will join this meeting with the spirit of cooperation and compromise and put their words into action,” said Griffiths.

The government of Yemen welcomed last Thursday the ceasefire call by the UN Secretary General to fight risks of the COVID-19 outbreak.

For its part, the Saudi-led coalition, affirmed on Thursday its support to the government’s acceptance to the ceasefire call in Yemen to control the COVID-19.
