UN Calls for Political Dialogue and Release of Senior Officials in Yemen

UNITED NATIONS – The UN Security Council has urged all groups in Yemen to resolve their differences through dialogue and called for the “immediate” release of senior officials who have been detained or put under house arrest.

In a statement issued Wednesday, the UN body asked all parties, including the Shiite Houthi rebels, to refrain from any “provocation” that would undermine the political transition in the country.

Yemen has been going through some key moments since President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi announcement on Saturday that he will be continuing as president, retracting his resignation last month.

Yemen’s capital, Sana’a, has been under the control of the Houthis since September.

On Saturday, Hadi managed to circumvent the siege laid on his house by the Shiite rebels and make his way to the city of Aden.

In its statement, the Security Council welcomed the news that the Yemeni president was no longer under house arrest.

But it also asked for the release of Prime Minister Khaled Bahah and other members of the government and senior officials who are still under house arrest or have been arbitrarily detained.

On Wednesday, the Yemeni president met Abdullatif al-Zayani, the secretary-general of Gulf Cooperation Council, who, according to sources, extended his full support to the leader.
