STORYLINE:

“United in their deep concerns about the risks to the humanitarian situation”, members of the UN Security Council reiterated their call today for the Yemeni ports of Hodeidah and Saleef to be kept open as fighting is the country has escalated.

In a statement read to the press by Russian ambassador Vassily Nebenzia, whose country is currently presiding over the Council, the Security Council urged all sides to the conflict to “uphold their obligations under international humanitarian law.” It called for the full implementation of Council resolutions including 2216 which called for an end to the violence in Yemen.

Nebenzia said Council members reiterated their support for a political solution as the only way to end the conflict in Yemen and reaffirmed their support for the ongoing efforts of the UN special envoy Martin Griffiths.
The UN estimates that there are 600,000 civilians in the city of Hodeidah, many of whom are dependent on assistance to survive.
