Yemen Government and Houthis Meet in Jordan on Port Revenues

The Office of the Special Envoy of the Secretary General for Yemen will meet the Yemeni parties in Amman, capital of Jordan, on Tuesday 14 May, to discuss implementation of the economic provisions of the Hudayda Agreement reached in Sweden in December 2018.

The meeting in Jordan comes as a UN mission is to verify the redeployment of the rebels form the ports of Hodeida, Saleef and Ras Issa.

Issues to be discussed will include the management of revenues from the ports of Hudayda, Ras Issa and Salif, and their use for the payment of public sector salaries in Hudayda governorate and throughout the country.

The Special Envoy encourages the parties to engage constructively and with good faith to agree the modalities of implementation, for the benefit of the people in Hudayda and the whole of Yemen.

Yemen’s warring parties started fresh UN-sponsored talks in Jordan on Monday, Yemeni officials said, two days after Houthi forces began withdrawing from the ports of Hodeida, breaking a six month stalemate.
