Yemen representative to UN renews govt support to UN peace mediator
[17/04/2018 08:54]

NY-SABA
Yemen's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Khaled Hussein Alyemany,has renewed the government's support to the UN peace mediator to Yemen.

In a statement to the UN Security Council on Tuesday, Alyemany said the government is ready to work with the UN Secretary General's Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths with a constructive and flexible spirit to reach a sustainable peace that puts an end to the state of destruction and puts down the war that the Houthi rebel militia has been waging since their coup d'état in September 2014.

He said that "the search for peace in Yemenis guided by certain terms of reference that have rarely been available to any crisis in the world." He said that the Houthi militia has tried through its allies and friends to belittle these terms of reference and signal that they are in the helm of power and thus can never cede it back again. And (signal) that they can attack the Yemeni people and Yemen's neighboring countries and impose the rule of forceful repression and anarchy.

He said that leaving the security of Yemen and the region in the hands the Houthi guerilla is the ultimate political risk.

He said that no country can let a Hezbolla-style terrorist militia that receives finances and armament from a foreign country to govern its political life. He pointed to the flexibility of the government in the previous rounds of peace talks versus the maximalist attitude of the rebel militia.

He said that the government welcomes Griffiths idea which he had raised during his meeting with President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi in the past week to re-open Sana'a Airport "for humanitarian purposes under the supervision of the United Nations and to secure the ouster of the rebels" from its administration. He said that the government had earlier been offering this very idea of re-opening the airport under the UN supervision.

But he said that the normalization of life would only occur by ending the coup and restoration of the state.

He called on the UN Security Council to make sure that the rebel militia get forced to abide by its resolutions and not rewarded for the crimes against humanity which they have committed, so as not to encourage armed militias in the world to go ahead in their insurgency against their governments and spread chaos and terrorism.

He told the UN Security Council that "your council has failed in pressuring Iran to stop its interferences in Yemen."

He said that the rebel militia created the Yemeni people's humanitarian disaster and used it as a shield; disguised itself as a victim in the view of the international community. He called on the UNSC to pressure the rebel militia to stop refusing the peace initiatives and hold this militia accountable before the world.

He appealed to the UNSC to continue to stand by the Yemeni people in these defining moments of history as it has been since the beginning of the transformation in 2011. He said the Yemeni people won't forget the noble efforts of the UNSC to end this coup and restore the federal Yemen that satisfies the aspirations of all its people.
