Today, Tuesday, the United Nations expressed its deep concern about the continued escalation of the Houthi militia in Marib, stressing that the escalation will only prolong the suffering of Yemenis.
The Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs and Peace Building, Rosemary DiCarlo, praised the efforts of the Yemeni government, its cooperation and its positive response to the efforts of the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General to Yemen and with all peace initiatives.
She indicated that Yemen is a major priority for the United Nations and that the Secretary-General personally attaches special importance to the Yemeni crisis and is fully committed to achieving a negotiated political settlement to end the conflict in Yemen.
This came during a video call with Yemen’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Abdullah Al-Saadi, to discuss political developments and the humanitarian situation in Yemen.
Ambassador Al-Saadi affirmed the Yemeni government’s firm stance towards peace and its support for the efforts of the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General of the United Nations to Yemen to reach a political settlement based on the agreed terms of political solution, and its welcome and positive engagement with all initiatives and proposals aimed at ending the war and alleviating the human suffering of the Yemeni people as a result. The Houthi militia coup supported by the Iranian regime.
He pointed out that the Houthi militia continues to escalate and its brutal military attack on Marib, which proves the unwillingness of those militias to end their absurd war that created the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, pointing to the intransigence and rejection of the Houthi militias of all initiatives and proposals and obstruction of peace efforts.
Al-Saadi stressed the need for the international community to make a collective effort, especially the Security Council, to put pressure on the Houthi militias to stop their attack on Marib, which aims to undermine the political process and exacerbate the humanitarian crisis, and pressure the militias to accept the peace option and deal positively with the calls and efforts of the international community to end the conflict.
