Houthi militia stalls Stockholm agreement - Yemeni Pres.

JEDDAH, Nov 19 (KUNA) -- Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi said on Tuesday that the Houthi militias had stalled the implementation of the Stockholm agreement on the port and the city of Hodeidah, resolving the prisoners' file and lifting the siege on the Yemeni city of Taiz.
During a meeting with UN envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths in Riyadh, Hadi noted that the non-implementation of the Stockholm agreement places further complications in this regard, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said.
The Yemeni president reaffirmed keenness on comprehensive peace in accordance with the three agreed on terms of reference and pushing for sustainable security and stability in Yemen and the region away from temporary solutions and deportation of crises.
For his part, Griffiths praised the Yemeni President's efforts for peace and breaking the deadlock in the various consultations between the Yemeni parties and their tracks, the latest of which was the signing of the Riyadh Agreement with the Southern Transitional Council.
In December last year, the Yemeni government and Houthi militias signed the Stockholm Agreement, which provides for a ceasefire in Hodeidah and its ports, Salif and Ras Issa. In addition, lift the siege of the province of Taiz. (end) nso.aa
