The head of the Yemeni national negotiating delegation, Mohammed Abdulsalam, has affirmed that “there is no place for half-solutions regarding the humanitarian situation.”
Abdulsalam said on Monday that their firm stance could “not be subject to any bargaining with regard to the humanitarian aspect at all.”
لا مكان لأنصاف الحلول فيما يتعلق بالوضع الإنساني الذي نؤكد على موقفنا الثابت بعدم إخضاعه لأي مقايضة بالمطلق، عدم الرغبة في فصل الملف الإنساني عن غيره من الملفات دلالة على عدم الجدية في التوصل لحل سلمي شامل وعادل .

He indicated that “the unwillingness to separate the humanitarian file from other files proved the lack of seriousness in reaching a comprehensive and just peaceful solution.”
Negotiations between the Saudi-led invaders and representatives from Yemen have been developing slowly, for a major part due to Saudi insistence on making fundamental humanitarian solutions such as allowing food and fuel shipments into Yemen, dependent on ending Yemeni retaliatory strikes against Saudi military targets.
