The two parties also discussed cooperation between the government and the commission for boosting and protecting human rights in Yemen and unearthing Houthi Crimes.
"The government of Yemen depends on the Office of the High Commission for Human Rights and holds it responsible over silences on crimes committed by Houthi militia in Yemen in general and in Hajour area, Hajja Province in particular," said al-Hadhrami.
"The United Nations should shoulder its responsibility and did not turn a blind eye to crimes committed by Houthi militia against human rights in Hajour; illegal killing, kidnapping innocent and displacing and destroying houses of civilians," he said.
