Madam President, Members of this Council,
We meet at an important time. It has been two years – two years - too long since the Yemeni people had the chance for a negotiated end to this war.
Sana’a, 29 July 2018 – On 26, 27 and 28 July, airstrikes occurred near a reproductive health centre and public laboratory in Hodeidah and hit and damaged a sanitation facility in Zabid and a water station, which supplies the majority of the water to Hodeidah City.
The Special Envoy is making good progress towards the production of a framework for negotiations as promised in his briefing to the UN Security Council in April. He plans to put that to the council in the first half of June.
