Yemen's humanitarian situation priority in ongoing negotiations: Sanaa
The head of the Yemeni negotiating delegation in the Sanaa government says the difficult humanitarian situation in Yemen is on top of the ongoing negotiations.
The head of the Yemeni negotiating delegation in the Sanaa government, Mohammad Abdul Salam, stated that the difficult humanitarian situation in Yemen is a priority in the ongoing negotiations.
"The intensive visits between Sanaa and Muscat reflect our seriousness in reaching tangible results, and the issue is related to the extent of the seriousness of the other party," Abdul Salam said today.
"The humanitarian situation is is a priority in the political negotiations," he stressed.
The words of the head of the negotiating delegation come after a Yemeni insistence throughout the last period to impose the humanitarian file in Yemen as a priority within the ongoing negotiations with the Omani delegation, and to separate it from the political demands and conditions that are being discussed.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Sanaa government announced that a delegation from the Sultanate of Oman arrived in the capital "to complete the discussions and transfer the ideas and proposals carried by the Saudi side and international parties to the leadership of Sanaa."
According to Al Mayadeen correspondent, this is the second visit of the Omani delegation to the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, since the end of the armistice last October.
Deputy Prime Minister for Security and Defense Affairs, Lieutenant General Jalal Al-Rowaishan stated to Al Mayadeen in the past month that the recent visit of the Onmani delegation "carried positive points" related to resolving the economic crisis, through the disbursement of salaries and through showing an initial desire by the countries of aggression to reach a solution and peace in Yemen.
Al-Rowaishan confirmed that Sanaa was clear about its conditions that include stopping the war, ending the blockade, and the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Yemen.
The United Nations considers the situation in Yemen as the worst humanitarian crisis worldwide. The International Organization for Migration has lately warned that over 25.5 million Yemenis are living in poverty as a result of the Saudi-led aggression, which entered its 8th year.
The UN migration agency also posted on Twitter, using the hashtag "Yemen Can't Wait," that the war on Yemen has displaced over 4 million people and forced more than 2 million children out of school.
