SANAA, Yemen, Yemen's warring parties agreed on new measures to reinforce the cease-fire deal and troops withdrawal from the port city of Hodeidah, according to a UN statement.
Representatives from both Yemeni warring parties met on Sunday and Monday, aboard a UN ship on the Red Sea, for resumed discussions on the implementation of a stalled troops withdrawal from Hodeidah, as agreed in a deal reached in Stockholm in Dec, last year.
They agreed on a mechanism and new measures to reinforce the cease-fire and deescalation, to be put in place as soon as possible, with support from the United Nations Mission to Support the Hudaydah Agreement (UNMHA).
The meeting was chaired by Michael Lollesgaard, head of the UN observer team in Hodeidah and chairman of the Redeployment Coordination Committee (RCC), which includes representatives of the Yemeni government and Houthi group.
Hodeidah is the main Yemeni port city on the Red Sea and key lifeline entry of most of Yemen's commercial imports and humanitarian aid.
