Houthi Militias

The Yemeni government has blamed the Iranian-backed Houthi militia for the stalled implementation of the Stockholm Agreement reached in consultations hosted by Sweden at the end of last year 2018.

Yemeni Foreign Minister Mohammed Al-Hadrami said the continued intransigence of Houthi militias in implementing the Agreement was the main obstacle to the political settlement process.

This came during a meeting held here today between the Yemeni official and the Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde.

Al-Hadrami stressed that the legitimate Yemeni government is keen on peace and will continue to support the efforts of the UN special envoy to Yemen to reach a lasting peace based on the three references.

For his part, the Swedish minister affirmed her country’s stand by the Yemeni Government and its support for the efforts of the Special Envoy of the UN Secretary General.
