“When the Ansar Allah, the Houthis came up with the offer to a unilateral redeployment from the ports, we accepted because of the possibility of us starting to get the work going in the ports. As you know this is an important objective in the Stockholm Agreement that the ports are open, they are getting better capacity and UNMHA is getting access to the port.”

“I think from our side, we have to focus on the ports and it was well intended, but still the Government of Yemen is not fully satisfied as you might have seen in the press with the process. They found that it was unfair that they did not have the chance to verify what was going on, they found that it was unfair that we call it unilateral because they were also ready to do phase one.”

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Lieutenant General Michael Lollesgaard, Head of the UN Mission to Support the Hudaydah Agreement (UNMHA):
“We adhere fully to the agreements that we have made, and therefore there will be a full joint verification of all the elements of the agreements in phase one, once we start the full redeployment of the phase one. But at current stage, there will be no joint verification. We need to finalize phase two, and the question of the local security forces before we start the full implementation of phase one.”

STORYLINE
The head of the UN Mission to Support the Hudaydah Agreement (UNMHA) Lieutenant General Michael Lollesgaard told reporters today that “it is an important objective in the Stockholm Agreement that the ports are open, they are getting better capacity and UNMHA is getting access to the port.”

Speaking to reporters via video from Yemen today (15 May), Lollesgaard said, “when the Ansar Allah, the Houthis came up with the offer to a unilateral redeployment from the ports, we accepted because of the possibility of us starting to get the work going in the ports.

The Lieutenant continued, “I think from our side, we have to focus on the ports and it was well intended, but still the Government of Yemen is not fully satisfied as you might have seen in the press with the process. They found that it was unfair that they did not have the chance to verify what was going on, they found that it was unfair that we call it unilateral because they were also ready to do phase one.”

Lollesgaard also said, “we adhere fully to the agreements that we have made, and therefore there will be a full joint verification of all the elements of the agreements in phase one, once we start the full redeployment of the phase one. But at current stage, there will be no joint verification. We need to finalize phase two, and the question of the local security forces before we start the full implementation of phase one.”

The Lieutenant explained there are two elements in phase one, one is the redeployment from the three ports and the creation of humanitarian access down to what is know as the Red Sea mills.
