Alsahwa Net- A report prepared by the Yemen’s negotiation team has strongly slammed the UN Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths.
The report accused Griffiths of seeking to legitimize the Houthis and misinforming the international community.
Yemen’s negotiation team has demanded to terminate the assignment of the UN Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths, saying that he has “wrong perceptions” and considers the legitimate government and criminal militia as equal.
The government also accused Griffiths of treating the "rebels as a de-facto government and as an equal to the legitimate and elected government" of Yemen.
Meanwhile, Yemen Parliament on Tuesday demanded the government not to deal with the UN Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths, accusing him of challenging UN Resolution 2216 and the Sweden agreement.
Griffiths told the UN Security Council last week that the Houthis withdrew from three Yemeni ports, pointing out that this withdrawal would allow the UN to play a leading role in supporting the Yemen Red Sea ports in management and inspections at the ports.
However, the government has accused the rebels of disguising their fighters in coastguard and police uniforms to keep control of the ports.
Yemeni officials portrayed the pull-out as a “show” meant to “misinform the international community”.
