Yemeni government and Houthi representatives have reached an agreement on the first phase of their redeployment of forces under a UN-sponsored deal for the warring armies to leave the Yemeni port city of Hodeidah.
In a statement issued by United Nations, said the two sides had agreed “in principle” on Phase 2, entailing the full redeployment of the parties’ forces in the whole province of Hodeidah, according to the UN plan. “After lengthy but constructive discussions facilitated by the RCC Chair, the parties reached an agreement on Phase 1 of the mutual redeployment of forces,” the UN statement said. “The parties also agreed, in principle, on Phase 2 of the mutual redeployment, pending additional consultations within their respective leadership.”
