Yemen truce monitor mission to meet on UN-hired ship

A committee overseeing a ceasefire in Hudaydah will hold its next meeting on a ship off the port city as Yemen’s warring parties cannot agree on a venue, Yemeni and UN sources said on Saturday.

The United Nations is trying to implement a truce and troop withdrawal accord in Hudaydah, the main entry point for most of Yemen’s imports, as part of efforts to end a Saudi-led war that has killed tens of thousands and left millions on the brink of starvation.

The UN envoy for Yemen has urged the warring parties to withdraw their troops from the port quickly, and international aid agencies said conditions for thousands of starving people were deteriorating fast.

The truce in Hudaydah has largely been respected since coming into force a month ago, but skirmishes continue between the warring parties.
