Yemen’s Information Minister, Daifallah al-Shami, stressed that the Salvation government in the Arab impoverished country is committed to UN-sponsored ceasefire in Hodeidah despite violations by Saudi-led coalition.
In remarks on Sunday, al-Shami said that “Yemen’s salvation government’s commitment to the ceasefire agreed upon in Sweden is moral commitment.”
Meanwhile al-Shami dismissed as baseless claims by Saudi-led media that the coalition representatives in Hodeida were targeted by Yemeni drones, stressing that such claims aim at covering the Saudi-led coalition’s violations.
Representatives of Yemen’s salvation government -formed by Houthi revolutionaries- and Saudi-backed exiled government agreed to UN-sponsored ceasefire in Hodeidah.
The warning sides met in Sweden last month and reached a deal to let international monitors to be deployed in the strategic city. Under the deal, a Redeployment Coordination Committee (RCC) including both warring sides will oversee implementation.
The redeployment is intended to be the first step in the implementation of the agreement, to be followed by both sides pulling their forces out of three ports of Hodeidah, Salif and Rass Issa.
