"Gutierrez" stresses the need to implement a ceasefire agreement in Hodeidah

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Gutierrez stressed the need to ensure the implementation of the ceasefire agreement in Hodeidah expressing the hope that progress will be made towards a political solution and political process to end the fighting in Yemen.

The statement came in a direct dialogue on Facebook while participating in the World Economic Forum in Davos, according to the United Nations News Centre.

The dialogue is an essential tool for solving problems, Gutierrez said.

"The distribution of humanitarian aid must be allowed in a way that addresses the most difficult humanitarian catastrophe of the past decade so that Yemen can finally move and solve its problems, but there is still a long way to go," he added.

"We must all join our efforts to ensure that the parties in Yemen understand that war does not solve any problem," he said. My grandfather always said that the worst deal, better than the best war. "

The Secretary-General stressed the need not to succumb to despair, whatever the obstacles, and said that peace was the most important resource for human beings.

In their consultations in Sweden last year, the parties to the conflict in Yemen agreed to the joint redeployment of troops from the ports and city of Hodeidah to agreed locations outside the city and ports.

The two sides also reached an understanding to improve the situation in Taiz and exchange prisoners.
