The Yemeni government called on the United Nations to change the relief route to the governorate of Taiz through the safe areas and the port of Aden, to ensure that such assistance continues to reach the beneficiaries without delay or hindrance.
The Yemeni government has justified their request in light of the continued violations of the Houthi and Salah Militia.
There are international efforts in parallel with the governmental efforts to prevent the deterioration of the situation in Yemen, which is suffering from a serious humanitarian crisis.
With Taiz being besieged, the relief convoys continue to be targeted. As such, the Yemeni government demanded a change in the relief routes to Taiz through the port of Aden instead of Al Hudaydah which is under the control of the militias, to ensure that the beneficiaries could benefit from these aids without obstacles.
In the context of countering the flow of arms to the revolutionaries through the port of Hudaydah, the Yemeni government suggested that the United Nations should monitor the port to prevent arm smuggling.
In this volatile situation, the UN envoy to Yemen Ismael Weld Sheikh Ahmed announced that the United Nations intends to launch a new round of negotiations before the holy month of Ramadan, stressing that they are discussing proposals with the militias based on finding ways to monitor the port of Hudaydah to prevent the smuggling of weapons.
