Reaction to the announcement on the withdrawal of Houthis and government forces from Hudaydah, Yemen

Reacting to the announcement on the withdrawal of Houthis and government forces from Hudaydah port in Yemen, Oxfam’s Yemen Country Director, Muhsin Siddiquey said:

“The redeployment of forces from Hudaydah, as part of the Stockholm Agreement, and under UN observation would be a welcome step. However, the humanitarian situation in Yemen remains dire. With 14 million people on the brink of famine, Yemenis desperately need all parties to agree to an immediate country wide ceasefire and return to negotiations with a commitment to ending the war and achieving a lasting peace.”
