Se­cu­rity Coun­cil OKs mon­i­tors for truce in Ye­men

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

The U.N. Se­cu­rity Coun­cil voted unan­i­mously Fri­day to au­tho­rize the de­ploy­ment of U.N. mon­i­tors to ob­serve the im­ple­men­ta­tion of a cease-fire in Ye­men’s key port of Hodeida and the with­drawal of ri­val forces from that area.

The U.N. en­voy for Ye­men had urged rapid de­ploy­ment of U.N. mon­i­tors as “an es­sen­tial part of the con­fi­dence” needed to help im­ple­ment the Dec. 13 cease-fire agree­ment be­tween Ye­men’s gov­ern­ment and Houthi Shi­ite rebels. The pact also calls for the “phased but rapid mu­tual with­drawals” of fight­ers from the port and city of Hodeida plus other ports.
