Briefing by Mr. Martin Griffith, Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen, on the situation in the Middle East (Yemen).
The Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen, Martin Griffiths, today (09 Jan) told the Security Council that “both sides have largely adhered” to the ceasefire in Hudaydah governorate agreed in Stockholm late last year.
Briefing via teleconference from Amman, Jordan, Griffiths said, “there has been a significant decrease in hostilities since then,” but “unfortunately, and perhaps unsurprisingly, there has been some violence, including in Hudaydah city, and in the southern districts of the governorate.”
However, he added “this is remarkably limited compared to what we saw in the weeks before the Stockholm consultations.”
The Special Envoy said, “progress on some of the issues has been gradual and indeed somewhat tentative, but there is a tangible contribution to peace.”
He called on the parties “not be diverted from their commitments through issues of delays and difficulties which are unexpected,” and asked for the support of the Council “in encouraging the parties to stay the course and to overcome together any challenges that may be encountered along the way.”
