Iran: Stockholm agreement prelude to find solution for Yemen

Tehran, May 13, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi reiterated that Iran's support for Stockholm agreement on Yemen, saying its implementation is a prelude for achieving final and comprehensive political solution.

Abbas Mousavi described as constructive the unilateral withdrawal of Yemeni National Salvation Government forces from three ports of Al Hudaydah, Ras Isa and As-Salif.

Sana'a act in line with Stockholm agreement indicates determination and commitment of Yemeni National Salvation Government to negotiations and also sabotage and lack of commitment of the Saudi coalition, he added.

Referring to obstructions made by Saudi-Emirati led forces, Mousavi urged the UN and effective countries to ask them to comply with their commitments and to set aside their sabotage to stop Stockholm agreement.

Yemeni Ansarallah started withdrawing from Al Hudaydah, Ras Isa and As-Salif ports on Saturday.

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 installing 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 and the government representatives. It agreed to install 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.
