Yemen’s humanitarian situation was top on agenda in the new round of talks in Muscat between the warring sides of Yemen. In a tweet, the head of the Yemeni delegation, Mohammed Abdul Salam, said he and the UN envoy discussed improving the humanitarian situation in Yemen.
Mohammed Abdul Salam said the humanitarian crisis in Yemen is deteriorating due to the continued closure of Sana'a airport and Hodeidah port, adding that a new agreement could be the first step toward broader negotiations and a comprehensive political solution.
Since the beginning of the Saudi war on Yemen in March 2015, the kingdom has maintained an all-out blockade on the country, depriving millions of civilians of their basic rights for life, and even preventing oil ships from entering Yemen. This has pushed the war-torn country to the brink of famine and has wrecked the health care system.
