Hodeidah deal 'at risk of collapse'because of Houthi excesses
[26/01/2019 05:17]

Yemen's Foreign Ministry said the peace agreement the government and Houthis signed in Sweden on December 13, mainly the part of it on Hodeidah, is "at risk of collapse because of excesses of the Iran affiliated coupistmilitia of Houthis."

The UN-sponsored deal provided for the withdrawal of the rebel militia from the key port city and the handover of it to the government.

In a statement released on Saturday, the Foreign Ministry said the militia decimated several tons of wheat and four, a humanitarian aid for the Yemeni people, by bombarding the main mills and silos in Hodeidah on Friday. It said the militia have persisted in avoiding the implementation of the Hod eidah deal, refusing the opening of passages for humanitarian aid and allowing a humanitarian aid convoy, long prepared for by the Redeployment Committee,to access Hodeidah.

The statement reiterated: "We warn that the Stockholm Agreement is at risk of collapse in Hodeidah and that (our)self-restrain approach won't last for ever if the militia don't stop drafting of more reinforcements and fightersto Hodeidah, building fortifications, violating ceasefire, attacking civilians in daily provocative actions and targeting sites of government forces."

The ministry said the soft approach of the UN and the international community towards Houthis has allowed the militia to commit more breaches, stubbornly avoid the implementation of the agreement and seek only a settlement that carries forward their threat to the future.

The Ministry said it is "surprised by the UN officials' continuance to make ambiguous statements on the dead lock " that the Houthis have created.

"The passage of nearly one month and a half without Houthi implementing of the agreement is a sufficient proof for the world to know that this group does not believe in peace or in dialogue," read the statement.

"It is time for the international community to declare which party is the obstructionist and (time for) the international community to assume its responsibility towards the Yemeni people."
