In a tweet, Abdulsalam said, "There is no truth of what was reported by some biased media outlets about an agreement to extend the truce." He reiterated the position of the National Delegation, saying: "We already clarified yesterday our position and the demands of our Yemeni people in a statement issued by the National Delegation."
On Saturday, Yemen's National Delegation issued a statement on the latest developments of the truce. In the statement, the National Delegation made it clear that since the start of the truce, despite the delay, the National team was keen not to miss any opportunity that could lead to peace.
It stated that the national team was dealing with restraint towards the US-Saudi violations to give more time to international deliberations and efforts.
The statement stressed that Sana'a did not have any special agenda other than Yemen's interest, human and legal rights.
It pointed out that the national party accepted the first and second extension in hope of any sense of responsibility or understanding on the part of the US-Saudi Aggression and its mercenaries.
The statement stated that during the 6 months of the truce, there was not any seriousness to address the humanitarian issue as an urgent priority. It pointed out that US-Saudi aggression bet on the economic card, the continuation of the siege is clear after all their other aggressive plans have failed.
The statement stressed the right of the Yemeni people to defend themselves and their rights and to confront aggression and siege.
National Delegation held the US-Saudi aggression responsible for reaching a dead end as a result of their intransigence and their disavowal of measures that alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people.
A UN-brokered truce in Yemen first came into effect on 2 April, and for an initial two months. It was renewed for another two months in June.
The deal stipulated 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."
However, in light of UN silence, the Saudi-led aggression was still obstructing flights to the Sana'a International Airport in Yemen’s capital and detaining fuel ships that were headed to the country. The fires of the aggression side did not subside along the fronts, on the borders and inside, including shelling, reconnaissance, development and crawl.
When the period specified for the military and humanitarian truce was nearing its end, the US-Saudi aggression seemed to be in a hurry to adopt the option of extending it 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.
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.
The truce has been renewed for an additional two months through 2 October, UN Special Envoy for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, announced.
The extension includes a commitment by the Saudi-led aggression and the Salvation Government to intensify negotiations to reach an expanded agreement as soon as possible.#Yemen #US-Saudi Aggression #Head of National Delegation #UN-Sponsored Truce 22-10-03
