The United States, and even more so Britain, which had previously hampered the prospects for a new resolution on Yemen at the UN Security Council, have radically changed their position. London, in particular, began to play a positive role in ending the conflict. Britain`s mission to the UN Security Council has drafted a new UN resolution calling for a ceasefire in Hodeidah and guarantees for safe passage for the provision of food and medicine, and British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt participated in peace talks in Sweden. “It offers a certain degree of consensus, perhaps not with all the actors involved in this war in Yemen, but at least with some of them. And I think there will be a reason to come back, and it shows all actors that peace can be transmitted. It is also the first time that Houthi troops have agreed to withdraw from one of the main front lines of the conflict. This makes the deal “too good to be true,” and in fact, it could turn out to be the case. Various points of the agreement are vaguely formulated and open to different interpretations by the belligerents. For example, he speaks of the “reciprocal transfer of the armed forces of the city of Hodeidah and the ports of Hodeidah, Salif and Ras Issa”; The Houthis interpret this in such a way as to withdraw the military presence, but not to withdraw, while the other side believes that the Houthis should withdraw completely. This will be a focal point of controversy in the coming months. Saudi Arabia`s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman hailed the deal as a step toward a broader political solution to end the multifaceted conflict. Avril Longley, of the International Crisis Group, said the deal could be positive, but it was too early to tell.

For the 12 million Yemenis on the brink of famine and for the country as a whole, this was an urgent positive step towards peace. However, it should be recognised that the agreement has major restrictions and that considerable efforts must be made to ensure its implementation. .
