The Yemeni government said, on Sunday, that the UN armistice and the negotiations held in the Jordanian capital, Amman, once again revealed, inside and outside the country, the reality of the Houthi terrorist militia affiliated with Iran.
The Yemeni Minister of Information, Muammar Al-Eryani, said that the events in Yemen since the entry into force of the truce confirmed that the Houthi militia is the one who stands as a stumbling block to efforts to calm down and establish peace.
He accused the Houthi militia of besieging civilians, looting revenues for them instead of directing them to pay the salaries of employees, and that they use the humanitarian file as a material for misinformation, extortion and bargaining.
Al-Eryani indicated, in a press statement, that the government, from the first moment of the declaration of the entry into force of the UN armistice, began implementing all its commitments contained in the declaration of the armistice. It made many concessions in order to achieve this, in order to alleviate the suffering of Yemenis.
On the other hand, he pointed out that the Houthi militia did not implement any of its commitments contained in the armistice declaration, and continued its violations on various fronts, and repudiated the obligation to open crossings and facilitate the movement of citizens and the movement of goods between governorates, and obstructed all initiatives and solutions to open a road not exceeding half a kilometer at the main entrance. Taiz governorate, as he put it.
The Yemeni Minister of Information called on the international community, the United Nations, and the UN and US envoys to reconsider the way they deal with the Houthi militia, and to put real pressure on the militias to engage in good faith in efforts to calm down and bring peace, and to prevent them from using the armistice as an opportunity to arrange papers and prepare for a new cycle of escalation.
