Abdulmalek al-Ajri member of the National Delegation has commented on the UN Security Council session Thursday on Yemen and briefing of Martin Griffiths, UN Special Envoy for Yemen to the Council, as a “normal session.” He ruled out any signs of a political settlement, warning of turning the Hodeidah agreement into a hanger to disrupt the comprehensive and just peace consultations in Yemen.
“There is no connection between the Hodeidah agreement and the start of comprehensive peace consultations,” al-Ajri said in a tweet on Thursday, referring to the ongoing escalation of targeting Hodeidah and other provinces by the coalition and its mercenaries.
In a statement to Sputnik on Thursday, Al-Ajri said, “the position of the coalition of aggression intersects with our conviction and our principled position of the comprehensive settlement. The intransigence is from the other side, although Martin Griffith indicated the desire of the warring parties he met to reach a solution.”
“The question is if there is a desire to a solution, why they refuse to start discussing the political framework for a political settlement as a minimum, this is the true credibility of the desire for a solution.”
“Although we confirm the completion of the Hodeidah agreement, the suspension of talks on the completion of the agreement is only an attempt to escape from the comprehensive settlement to continue work to complete the implementation of the Hodeidah agreement and to discuss other issues we agreed in Sweden,” he added.
The aggression, led by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and their mercenaries, continues to violate the Sweden Agreement, even after the resumption of meetings of the tripartite coordination committee under the chairmanship of the head of the UN mission Michael Lollesgaard Sunday and Monday.
