Al-Yamani says the UN secretary general promised that Houthis will withdraw from Hodeidah


United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Gutierrez has promised that the militants of Houthi group will withdraw from the city and ports of Hodeidah, in the application of the Stockholm agreement, Foreign Minister Khalid al-Yamani said Sunday.

"During the Saturday meeting, the UN Secretary-General promised not to let the Yemeni people who have a special relationship with him since he was a High Commissioner for Refugees," he said in a tweet posted on his Twitter account.

"The Hodeidah agreement will be implemented, and the Houthis will leave the city and ports as a first step towards achieving peace in Yemen," Gutierrez said.

More than 40 days after Sweden's agreement, the United Nations appeared unable to make any progress in the implementation of the Agreement, particularly about the Hodeidah dossier, the ceasefire and the withdrawal of all parties from the city and ports of Hodeidah.
