Sanaa to take suitable measures on truce to alleviate Yemeni suffering
The Supreme Political Council of Yemen declares that Sanaa's position is consistent towards peace and its orientation is supportive of all sincere efforts in this context.
The Yemeni Supreme Political Council confirmed on Sunday that it "will consider everything that has been submitted or will be submitted to the council regarding the armistice" and will take the appropriate relevant decision.
In a statement, the council said, "We will take the appropriate decision regarding the truce in a manner that meets the volume of sacrifices, serves the supreme national interest, preserves the gains, and alleviates the suffering of the Yemeni people."
The statement pointed out that "expanding and enhancing the benefits of the armistice by disbursing salaries to all state employees, opening airports and ports and opening roads will help discuss any serious ideas in this regard."
The statement also reiterated "Sanaa's firm stance towards peace and its supportive approach to all sincere efforts in this context," praising "the level reached by the armed and security forces, which confirms their high readiness."
The statement stressed "the support of the independence of the judiciary and developing its performance at all levels in order to achieve justice and ensure its access to all citizens."
Today, the Executive Mine Action Center in Sanaa confirms the death and injury of 324 civilians since the truce took effect on April 2, 2022, as a result of mines, cluster bombs, and other remnants left behind by the Saudi-led coalition.
It is noteworthy that Yemen's warring parties agreed to extend the truce for another two months just hours before it was due to expire, the United Nations Special Envoy for Yemen Hans Grundberg announced Tuesday.
"I am pleased to announce that the parties have agreed to extend the truce, under the same terms, for an additional two months, from 2 August 2022 until 2 October 2022. This truce extension includes a commitment from the parties to intensify negotiations to reach an expanded truce agreement as soon as possible," Grundberg said in a statement.
"The expanded truce proposal would provide for reaching an agreement on a transparent and effective disbursement mechanism for the regular payment of civil servant salaries and civilian pensions, the opening of roads in Taiz and other governorates, opening additional destinations to and from Sana’a International Airport, and providing fuel and its regular flow of fuel to the ports of Hudaydah," he added.
