Government discusses with EU developments following Sweden's consultations

Prime Minister MoeenAbdulmalik said to  a visiting delegation from the European Union in a reception in the temporary capital Aden on Tuesday that Houthis are holding on to the policy of killing Yemeni people and besieging cities,

The delegation included the EU ambassador to Yemen, the French ambassador and the deputy ambassadors of Germany and the Netherlands to Yemen. 

Abdulmalik said the coup militia prevent the arrival of humanitarian deliveries and seize them by force to sell them and raise funds for what they call "the war effort."

He and the delegation discussed the developments following the Stockholm Agreement signed by the government and the militia in Sweden on December 13. 

He said that the Houthis have been continuing their explicit breaches and abandonment of the Stockholm Agreement which provides for the withdrawal of their militia from the city and port of Hodeidah indicate the lack of seriousness towards peace on their part. 

He, however, renewed the government's support for the UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths'push for peace. He asserted the importance of the three terms of reference for peace as a premise for guaranteeing a lasting peace. 

He also appreciated the support of the European Union to the government and to the Yemeni people through humanitarian aid that alleviates the impact of the South four-year-old pointless and devastating war. 

The ambassadors also expressed their happiness at the development of life in Aden and the liberated provinces, hoping to achieve successes in the upcoming consultations with the Houthis and to find common denominators on which to base the peace process and end the war.
