 The Security Council decided on Monday, to extend for six months a United Nations political mission overseeing a peace agreement between the Government of Yemen and the Houthi militia in the port city of Hodeidah.

Adopting resolution 2505 (2020), the Council renewed the mandate of the United Nations Mission to Support the Hodeidah Agreement (UNMHA) until 15 July, continuing the tasks set out when it was established on 16 January 2019 through resolution 2452 (2019).

The Mission — which monitors the city and port of Hodeidah, as well as the ports of Salif and Ra’s Issa — will continue to lead and support the Redeployment Coordination Committee to oversee the redeployment of forces, mine action operations and the governate-wide ceasefire agreement reached in Stockholm in December 2018. UNMHA will monitor the compliance of parties to the Hodeidah Agreement and work with them so that security in Hodeidah’s city and port, and the ports of Salif and Ra’s Issa, is assured by local forces.

The Council also requested the Secretary-General to report to the Security Council every month about progress in implementing the Agreement and provide a review of UNMHA at least one month before its mandate is due to expire.
