Yemen calls on UN to break Ad Durayhimi blockade

Tehran, Feb 4, IRNA – The Yemeni Ansarallah movement urged the United Nations and humanitarian bodies to make serious efforts to break the siege of Ad Durayhimi city, Al Hudaydah Province.

According to the Yemeni media 'Al-Masirah', Ansarallah political bureau in a statement slammed the measures taken by Emirati occupiers in Socotra and some other parts of Yemen.

Ansarallah also referred to the recent victories achieved by Yemeni forces against Saudi aggressors and praised Al Mahrah people for their movement against occupiers.

Earlier, a Yemen foreign ministry official said that the Yemeni nation opposes the presence of any foreign troops in the Arab country.

'Preserving the national sovereignty is a political and popular will,' an official at Yemen's foreign ministry earlier told Yemen News Agency (SABA), reacting to British Ambassador Michael Aron's remarks who had stressed that Yemeni government should decide about the presence of foreign troops.

The United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2451 to support the Stockholm Agreement on deployment of a team in order to facilitate monitoring and implementing the Agreement and establishing truce in important Yemeni ports.

The resolution mainly focuses on sending essential commodities to the Yemeni people, supporting the Stockholm Agreement, assigning the Secretary-General of the United Nations to implement it and observing the ceasefire.

The fourth round of Yemen peace talks kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden on December 6 with the attendance of the UN special envoy Martin Griffith and the government representatives. It agreed to establish truce in Yemeni ports of al-Hudaydah, al-Salif and Ayn Issa.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Since then, the invaders have committed horrible war crimes against Yemeni civilians.
