While the Yemenis await the implementation of the terms of the Swiss capital Berne agreement regarding detainees, the US envoy to Yemen, Tim Linderking, began today (Monday) his tour in the region in an attempt to advance peace efforts in Yemen.
The US State Department said, “Lenderking began today a tour that includes Saudi Arabia and the Sultanate of Oman in an attempt to advance peace efforts in Yemen,” explaining that her envoy will meet officials from Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Oman and other international partners to discuss efforts to continue the ongoing talks on the Yemeni crisis.
The statement indicated that Washington will work closely with Saudi Arabia, Oman and other partners to support the launch of an inclusive Yemeni-led political process.
In the meantime, the Mayon Human Rights Organization called in a statement today to pay the salaries of civil servants, to address the problem of the difference in the value of the local currency today compared to 2015, and to achieve a comprehensive and lasting peace.
On the occasion of International Labor Day, the organization said that government employees in northern Yemen have been living in tragic conditions due to the interruption of their salaries for 8 years, which the Houthi militia refuses to pay from the large revenues it reaps from the ports of Hodeidah, as well as the new customs points, exorbitant taxes and other revenues.
In another context, the same organization warned of the danger of the summer centers that Al-Houthi announced its inauguration, targeting more than a million school children, describing them as dangerous to the safety of children.
