United Nations: The UN Security Council has called on all parties in Yemen, particularly Al Houthis, to engage in meaningful dialogue to stop fighting and resolve the conflict.

The members of the Security Council on Tuesday reiterated their support for a political solution as the only way to end the conflict in Yemen and their call on all parties to immediately agree on the modalities for a durable cessation of hostilities, French ambassador to the United Nations Francois Delattre, who is president of the Security Council for October, told reporters, Xinhua reported.

“The members of the Security Council deeply regretted the lack of progress in the political process and the worsening of the humanitarian situation,” he said after Security Council consultations on Yemen.

The council asked for the implementation of relevant resolutions and demanded safe, rapid, unhindered, and sustained humanitarian access to all populations in all affected governorates, he said.
