United Nations to hold Yemen talks on port revenues

Yemen warring parties hold fresh talks as Houthis withdraw from Hodeidah

Based on a UN-brokered agreement with the ex-government in Sweden in December 2018, warring sides agreed to withdraw their forces from the ports in a two-stage process, the first phase of which from the Houthi side was unilaterally commenced on Saturday and is due to be completed on Tuesday.

The UN has hosted a new round of Yemen talks in Jordan today, with Saudi-backed officials and the Shi'ite Houthi movement meeting after a weekend of successful pullbacks from the vital aid port of Hodeidah.

Yemen's Huthi rebels have handed over security of key Red Sea ports to the "coastguard" but much work remains to remove military equipment, the United Nations said Tuesday.

The government forces, backed by the Saudi-led coalition, have advanced to the southern outskirts of the port city, but the forces have halted a major offensive to recapture Hodeidah to pave the way for peace efforts.

But the government has accused the insurgents of merely handing over the ports to their own forces in different uniforms.

Hodeida is the main worldwide entry point for 70 per cent of imports and humanitarian aid to Yemen, where the four-year civil war has killed an estimated 60,000 people and pushed much of the country to the brink of starvation.

Lollesgaard, who chairs the Redeployment Coordination Committee, said last week that the redeployment in the Yemeni port city must be followed by committed, transparent and sustained actions of the parties involved to fully deliver on their obligations.

Back in September 2016, Hadi ordered a decree to unilaterally relocate the Central Bank of Yemen (CBY) from Houthi-held capital Sana'a to Aden, a southern port that now serves as the so-called temporary "capital" of Yemen and the base for Hadi's government.

But, considering the quality of players in each team, it could be safely assumed this will be a high octane battle. The Frenchman and Idrisa Gueye are expected to retain their midfield partnership for the last game of the season.


The conflict has killed tens of thousands people, many of them civilians, relief agencies say.

"UNDP is drawing upon our extensive experience, as well as national and worldwide expertise, to ensure we can fully restore the functionality of the Hodeidah ports as soon as possible", said Auke Lootsma, the agency's resident Representative in Yemen.

In the second phase of the redeployment, both sides would pull troops 18 kilometers outside Hudaydah and heavy weapons 30 kilometers away.

Martin Griffiths, the United Nations envoy for Yemen, said in mid-April that the government and the Houthis had reached a consensus on a plan for the initial redeployment of forces from the key port of Al Hodeidah.

The Saudi-led aggression that started in March 2015 is estimated to have left 56,000 Yemenis dead. Furthermore, armed militia forces loyal to Hadi, in line with invaders, launch frequent attacks against Yemeni people in regions held by Houthis. According to the world body, Yemen is suffering from the most severe starvation in more than 100 years.
