Ansarullah Calls on UN to Expedite Efforts to Stop Saudi War on Yemen

Sunday 5 July 2015
Ansarullah Calls on UN to Expedite Efforts to Stop Saudi War on Yemen
Alwaght-Yemen’s Ansarullah movement has urged the United Nations to expedite its efforts for implementing a humanitarian truce in the war-torn country.
Ansarullah’s spokesman Mohammad Abdulsalam announced on Saturday that he held a meeting with the UN special representative for Yemen in which he reiterated calls for establishing a ceasefire for delivering aid to the people affected by Saudi Arabia’s three-month-long military campaign against Yemen.
In a social media post, Abdulsalam said he had discussed in a Friday meeting with Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed ways of attaining a ceasefire in Yemen until the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
The senior Ansarullah official said the European Union special envoy to Yemen as well as the German ambassador to the country also attended the meeting, which took place in the Omani capital of Muscat.
The three sides have reportedly agreed on a mechanism for delivering humanitarian aid to people across Yemen if the UN pledge for hammering out a truce materializes.
Other reports on Saturday said the UN envoy has intensified negotiations with top officials in Saudi Arabia to convince them about Yemen’s urgent need for a humanitarian pause.
The United States and the European Union voiced similar concerns on Thursday about the deteriorating situation in Yemen, calling on the sides to the conflict to let food and medicine reach those in need across the impoverished country.
The EU also called on Riyadh to reduce its restrictions on the entry of ships to the Yemeni ports.
Saudi Arabia has been pounding different areas in Yemen since March 26 without any authorization from the United Nations and regardless of international calls for the cessation of its deadly campaign against the Arab country.
Saudi Arabia’s main objective in its aggression against Yemen is to weaken the popular Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch puppet of Riyadh.

Reports say the ruthless Saudi airstrikes in Yemen over the last 100 days have claimed the lives of more than 4,800 civilians, mostly women and children.
