Yemen Ceasefire Agreement 2020

The coalition will send observers to Abyan to respect the ceasefire and the separation of powers, he said. ABDULLAH ALI FADHEL AL-SAADI (Yemen) said his government continues to push forward efforts to end the war imposed on its people by the Houthis since 2014, in line with the outcome of its national dialogue and relevant international agreements such as those of the Gulf Cooperation Council and Security Council resolution 2216 (2015). Stressing that peace necessitates finally ending the Houthi coup, he said the government has a series of important compromises to that end. Unfortunately, the Houthis arrive “always with new conditions and conditions” at the government`s outstretched hand. Drawing on the Secretary-General`s call for a ceasefire, he said: “Our hands are always protracted for peace, but they are satisfied only by the intransigence of the Houthi militias against all agreements and agreements.” Instead, they continue to exploit the suffering of the Yemeni people and derail the peace process by even putting President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi under house arrest. Dozens of people were killed, including civilians, when fighting broke out despite a UN-brokered ceasefire. The representative of Viet Nam expressed concern about the threats to the famine that threaten the Yemeni people, and today`s briefings show a very bleak picture. The cost of basic foodstuffs is higher than ever, as the Yemeni currency has lost 25% of its value and 20 million people are suffering from hunger and malnutrition. There is an urgent need for all parties concerned to cease hostilities and resume negotiations in order to reach the joint declaration on a national ceasefire. Vietnam reiterated its call on international donors to meet their financial commitments so that humanitarian operations can be implemented in Yemen.

The United Nations has launched an emergency appeal for more than $50 million to clean up food programs. All parties involved should create favourable conditions for humanitarian workers to complete their work in parts of Yemen. The spread of the second wave of the COVID 19 pandemic must be halted. The representative of Belgium regretted that little progress had been made in Yemen last month. In October, the letters expressed a degree of confidence that the parties could reach an agreement. “Dialogue alone will end the war and resolve the big differences… Yemen,” she stressed, welcoming the implementation of the recent prisoner exchange agreement, which is an important instrument for building trust. She said economic decline and COVID-19 are now adding to the factors making Yemen one of the worst places to live on the planet – especially for children. In the Hudaydah Lowlands, an estimated 27% of children have acute dietary needs. “We are in danger of losing a whole generation of young children,” she stressed, stressing that the Member States of the European Union have assumed and will continue to assume their financial responsibilities. For its part, Belgium has achieved more than $30 million in core funding in 2020 alone, she said.
