UN calls for vital port of Hudaydah to stay open


The UN Security Council has reiterated its call for the rebel-held Yemeni port of Hudaydah to remain open after urgent talks on the Saudi-backed offensive, APA reports quoting BBC.

 

However, the council rejected a call by member state Sweden for an immediate halt to hostilities.

 

Pro-government forces backed by a Saudi-led coalition launched the offensive after Houthi rebels ignored a deadline to leave the port city.

 

Hudaydah is a key entry point for humanitarian aid to war-torn Yemen.
