Government of Yemen: Houthi militia stands as a stumbling block to peace

The Yemeni government said, on Sunday, that the UN armistice and the negotiations held in the Jordanian capital, Amman, once again revealed, inside and outside the country, the reality of the Houthi terrorist militia affiliated with Iran.

The Yemeni Minister of Information, Muammar Al-Eryani, stated that the events in Yemen since the entry into force of the armistice confirmed that the Houthi militia is the one who stands in the way of efforts to calm down and establish peace.

He accused the Houthi militia of besieging Civilians, and looting revenues for them instead of directing them to pay the salaries of employees, and that they use the humanitarian file as a material for misinformation, extortion and bargaining. Implementing all its commitments contained in the armistice declaration, it stopped firing on all fronts, facilitated the arrival of oil derivatives ships to the port of Hodeidah, and re-operated Sana’a Airport to the two destinations “Jordan and Egypt” and made many concessions in order to achieve this, in order to alleviate the suffering of the Yemenis

He pointed out that, on the other hand, the Houthi militia has not implemented any of its obligations contained in the declaration of the Houthis. A truce, and continued its violations on various fronts, and repudiated the obligation to open the crossings and facilitate the movement of citizens and the movement of goods between the governorates, and obstructed all initiatives and solutions to open a road not exceeding half a kilometer at the main entrance to Taiz governorate, as he put it.

The Yemeni Minister of Information called on the international community, the United Nations, and UN and American envoys to reconsider the way they deal with the Houthi militia, and to put real pressure on the militias to engage in good faith in efforts to calm and bring peace, and to prevent them from using the armistice as an opportunity to arrange papers and prepare for a new round of escalation.
