Yemen’s Minister of Foreign and Expatriate Affairs Ahmad Awadh BinMubarak and Ambassador of the United Kingdom Richard Oppenheim discussed peace efforts and the latest developments in the country on Thursday, the Yemen News Agency (SABA) reported.
The foreign minister highlighted the importance of ending the Houthis’ siege on Taiz, saying millions of Yemenis had been stripped of their basic human rights as a result, according to SABA.
The militia’s refusal to reopen the roads in Taiz would hinder the peace process in Yemen, he added.
The Yemeni government welcomed all efforts to achieve peace in the country and alleviate the suffering of its people, BinMubarak said.
He emphasized that international parties must continue to put pressure on the Houthis to honor their commitments to the truce, SABA reported.
For his part, the UK’s ambassador expressed his country’s continued support of Yemen and peace efforts that will help regain the country’s security and stability.
