Government official: Houthis prevented "lolisgaard " from visiting Ras Isa oil port


The Houthis prevented the head of the UN Monitoring Team, General Michael Lolisgaard, from visiting Ras Isa oil port in the western province Hodeidah, said a member of the government delegation negotiating in Sweden's consultations, Askar Zu’eel.

In a tweet on his Twitter page, Zu’eel said Monday that the move was to hinder the UN's efforts to implement the Hodeidah agreement.

He said that Lolisgaard had moved to Sanaa to file a complaint with the group's leader, Mohamed Ali al-Houthi.

Following the conclusion of Sweden's consultations (6-13 last December), the United Nations, through the redeployment committee led by Lolisgaard, failed to impose the Swedish agreement to withdraw the Houthis and pro-government forces from Hodeidah and its ports.
