The Compass – The UN Special Envoy for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, announced that 31 round-trip flights have been operated from the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, to Queen Alia Airport since the start of the truce.
And Grundberg indicated during his monthly briefing before the Security Council yesterday that the flights between Amman and Sana’a carried about 15,000 passengers, referring to what he described as “the exceptional support provided by Jordan.”
He noted that the flights increased during the last period to become 3 flights per week, after it was two flights between Sanaa and Amman.
Grundberg also stated that since the start of the truce, 33 ships have been allowed to enter the port of Hodeidah, carrying nearly one million metric tons of various oil derivatives.
On the opening of roads, he said, “We have presented to the parties several proposals on different groups of roads and options for the sequence of opening them, and it is unfortunate that despite these efforts, no progress has been made in opening roads so far.”
He stated that opening roads in Taiz and other governorates remained at the forefront of his efforts, and also highlighted the time his office on both sides of the Taiz front had taken to engage with local authorities, local mediators and civil society organizations.
He continued, “During my discussions with the parties, there was a constant emphasis on the importance of building on the existing truce to meet a broader range of economic and security priorities and to move towards more lasting solutions to issues of political dimensions.”
