“We welcome the statement of the UN envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths regarding the commitment to the Stockholm Agreement and the positive and the effective dealing with the joint implementation mechanisms of the United Nations mission to support the Hodeidah agreement,” Abdulsalam said in a tweet on his account on Twitter.
نرحب ببيان المبعوث الأممي إلى اليمن / مارتن قريفيث بخصوص التأكيد على الالتزام باتفاق ستكهولم والتعامل الإيجابي والفعال مع آليات التنفيذ المشتركة لبعثة الأمم المتحدة لدعم اتفاق الحديدة .

The UN envoy had expressed his concern about the military escalation in Hodeidah province, as it is not only a violation of the ceasefire agreement, but also contradicts the spirit of the existing negotiations sponsored by the United Nations to reach a ceasefire in all parts of Yemen.
In his statement Thursday, Griffiths called on all parties to immediately stop the hostilities, respect their commitments in the Stockholm Agreement and interact with the efforts of the United Nations mission to support the Hodeidah Agreement
