 The UN Special Envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths expressed his dismay and disappointment with the Houthi military activities in Yemen and the attacks against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

He reiterated the Secretary-General's call for an immediate cessation of hostilities to build a conducive environment for achieving a nation-wide ceasefire.

Griffiths added that indiscriminate attacks affecting civilians or civilian targets, whether inside or outside of Yemen, are unlawful and reprehensible.

He explained that Yemen needs its leaders to focus every minute of their time on averting and mitigating the potentially disastrous consequences of a COVID-19 outbreak.

He emphasized that the recent uptick in fighting runs counter to the stated commitments of all involved in the conflict to work on a ceasefire and their positive responses among diverse groups of Yemenis to the call by the UN Secretary-General to end the fighting in Yemen.

In wars, the windows to build unity and find common grounds between fighting parties are rare and precarious. There are always those who will do their best to spoil such opportunities. We cannot let them win, Griffiths said.
