EU Envoy in Yemen for Talks Over UN Plan to Run Key Port

Al-Sabah Al-Yemeni | news agencies |

The head of the European Union delegation to Yemen is visiting the country for talks with Houthis over a U.N. plan regarding a disputed key port.

Houthi officials say Ambassador Antonia Calvo Puerta arrived in Sana’a on Sunday to discuss the U.N. proposal for Hodeida port to be run by a third neutral party under U.N. supervision.

The Red Sea port of Hodeida, currently under Houthi control, is a vital lifeline for most of the country’s population.

Yemeni officials in the internationally recognized government of President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi say they welcome the U.N. plan.

A Saudi-led coalition, backing Hadi’s government and battling the Houthis, has long planned to seize the port but held back over fears it would impede humanitarian aid deliveries.
