Hanoi (VNA) – Ambassador Dang Dinh Quy, Vietnam's Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN), has called on all parties to cease military hostilities and spare no effort to work with the Special Envoy, regional partners and the international community in securing an acceptance of the United Nations-led peace proposal for Yemen.
Addressing the UN Security Council's meeting on the Yemen situation on June 15, Quy noted there have been no significant changes in Yemen's peace process despite tireless and resilient efforts of the UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy Martin Griffiths, his predecessors and their teams.
Joining other UNSC Member States in calling for a political settlement, he rejected a military solution to the nearly seven-year conflict in Yemen.
The inclusion of women in the political process in Yemen should also be ensured and promoted, he stressed.
Expressing his concern over increased hostilities and subsequent displacement, economic crisis, fuel shortage, food insecurity, starvation risk and the spread of COVID-19, the Vietnamese representative also called for a prompt, safe and unimpeded humanitarian access to Yemenis in need, especially in the country's north.
Rapporteurs informed about the shuttle diplomacy efforts of the UN and the international community over the past time to encourage the parties involved to agree with the UN-led peace proposal so as to end the war in Yemen. They also expressed their concern about recent conflicts, particularly in Marib and Houdaydah, which have resulted in many civilian casualties, including women and children.
Council members joined forces in their support for the Special Envoy's mediation efforts, repeating calls for a ceasefire, condemning the recent missile and drone attacks in Marib, as well as continued Houthi cross-border missile and drone strikes against Saudi Arabia. Several members also reiterated concerns about the environmental and humanitarian threat posed by the Safer oil tanker moored off the Houthi-controlled oil terminal in the Red Sea./.
