We continue to warn that Any renewed military activity in Hodeidah would be catastrophic for Yemen, potentially pushing millions into famine. We welcomed Houthi redeployments as a crucial first step in the plan to implement the Hodeidah Agreement, but there is more to do. The UK encourages all parties to continue to constructively engage with the UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths and General Lollesgaard. Implementing the Hodeidah Agreement remains a critical step towards the broader peace process.
