In the meeting, they discussed issues related to the truce and the proposals put forward by the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General of the United Nations Hans Grundberg to the National Delegation, as well as proposals related to addressing humanitarian and economic issues.
During the meeting, President Al-Mashat welcomed the delegation of Oman, praising the continuous positive efforts of the Sultanate in alleviating the suffering of the Yemeni people and supporting efforts to establish peace in Yemen. He stressed that these efforts are appreciated by the Yemeni leadership and people.
Mashat reiterated the keenness of Yemen to achieve a just peace that would achieve for the Yemeni people their right to sovereignty and independence. He pointed out the need for any truce to be accompanied by a tangible improvement in the economic and humanitarian situation of the Yemeni people, including the payment of the salaries of all state employees and retirees.
He pointed out that the demands of the Yemeni people represented in stopping the aggression and lifting the siege on Yemen, starting with the complete and immediate opening of Sana’a International Airport, the port of Hodeidah, and the payment of salaries for all employees from oil and gas revenues, are just and fair demands. It does not imply any incapacity or require a waiver by the Saudi-backed party.
Mashat stressed that the implementation of these steps will be supportive of peace and will contribute significantly to alleviating the suffering of citizens as a result of the aggression and siege.
The President stressed the importance of the US-led coalition's involvement in supportive measures to build confidence and the requirements of peace. He considered that their adherence to the blockade is a war crime and a crime against humanity, which is completely incompatible with the necessities of peace.
In early April, after Yemen’s Supreme Political Council declared a voluntary and unilateral three-day pause in retaliatory strikes against targets in Saudi Arabia, the UN special envoy for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, announced the nationwide ceasefire, for the first time since 2015.
The deal stipulates halting offensive military operations, including cross-border attacks, and allowing fuel-laden ships to enter Yemen's lifeline Hodeidah port and commercial flights in and out of the airport in the capital Sana'a "to predetermined destinations in the region ."
In early June, the United Nations announced that Yemen’s National Salvation Government and the US-Saudi coalition have agreed to renew the two-month truce after days of negotiations and promises to fulfill the terms of the agreement.
The UN envoy noted that the truce was extended under the same terms as the previous one.
The period specified for the military humanitarian truce is nearing its end, and the US-Saudi aggression seems to be in a hurry to adopt the option of extending for the third time to freeze the battle in Yemen and its economic repercussions away from global energy markets.
The forces of aggression are pushing for an extension, not out of concern for peace, but rather out of fear that the escalation will add more complications to the international scene in addition to the crisis imposed by the Russian-Ukrainian war.
A truce, the positive effects of which have not been felt by the citizens over the past months, despite its broad headlines. Commercial flights to Cairo are still stumbling until today, and the navy of aggression continues to pursue fuel ships without respect for agreements or any regard for international laws and norms. The fires of the aggression side did not subside along the fronts, on the borders and inside, including shelling, reconnaissance, development and crawl.
Double standards regarding the violations of the forces of aggression and its provocative practices is a double UN policy that has brought the crisis in Yemen to its current level of misery and deprivation that has affected everyone far from justice and the realization of the rights of the Yemeni people.
The Supreme Political Council requires, in order to extend the truce, the commitment of the Saudi-led aggression to pay the salaries of all employees and the rest of the services, as a natural entitlement that is not subject to extortion. Before that, the complete blockade of Sana’a airport and the port of Hodeidah must be lifted as a criterion for demonstrating the seriousness and goodwill in the faltering peace process in Yemen.
