The Yemeni government has called on the United Nations to relocate the headquarters of its mission to support the Hodeidah Agreement (UNMHA) to liberated areas or to a neutral zone. and not leave it subject to pressure and extortion by the Houthi militias.
Yemeni Foreign Minister Ahmed bin Mubarak. during his meeting in the temporary capital of Aden with the head of the United Nations Mission to Support the Hodeidah Agreement (UNMHA) and the chair of the Redeployment Coordination Committee.

The government expressed its readiness to overcome all the difficulties it faces. as reported by the official news agency SABA.
The meeting also addressed the repeated violations by. the Houthi rebels in the Hodeidah governorate and their military reinforcements towards the province. The rebels have repeatedly announced conducting missile tests in the Red Sea from the ports of Hodeidah, As-Salif. and Ras Isa. There has also been an increase in the number of mine victims planted in farms and residential areas, causing harm to civilians. especially in the Maqbanah region of Taiz governorate.
