He pointed to the efforts made locally, regionally and internationally during the 6-month truce, in which the Yemeni government committed to implementing all provisions of the truce agreement, including a comprehensive cease-fire on all fronts, allowing commercial flights to operate between Sanaa airport and a number of airports, and allowing fuel ships to enter Yemeni ports, including the ports of Hodeidah and Saleef in accordance with the ship control procedures approved by the United Nations.
