SANA’A – The head of the National Delegation to Sweden talks, Mohamed Abdulsalam, has on Friday said that the political leadership in Sana’a is adhering to the Hodeidah agreement and all agreements as approved in Stockholm, and will categorically reject any attempts to insert new things in them.
During a meeting in the Omani capital of Muscat where he met with British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, Abdulsalam reviewed the most important challenges facing the Sweden agreement, as well as the obstacles that Saudi-led coalition are making to evade its implementation.
Abdulsalam stated that the coalition attempted to evade the agreement on the redeployment plan that was presented by the Head of the Coordination Committee, Michael Lollesgaard, after all parties approved it.
Yemen’s chief negotiator expressed his surprise at the silence of the United Nations about what he called “intransigence” of the other party.
“Our delegates to the Coordination Committee remained committed to the first phase plan as presented by Lollesgaard and they are ready to implement it unilaterally if the United Nations asks for that,” he said.
For his part, the British Foreign Secretary confirmed his country’s offices with all parties in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi to push the peace process forward and support the agreement, expressing concern over the delay in its implementation that should be carried out as soon as possible.
