The National Alliance of Political Parties called on Griffiths to first work on implementing the Stockholm Agreement
Yemen political parties shocked by Griffiths’ call for ‘unconditional’ talks between Houthis, Hadi
Yemen’s National Alliance of Political Parties (NAPP) supporting President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi’s internationally recognized government expressed shock at a call by the UN Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths for “unconditional” political consultations between the Houthis and the Hadi government, despite the stalled implementation of the Stockholm Agreement.
In a statement on Feb. 8, NAPP, which consists of 17 political parties, called on Griffiths to work on implementing the Stockholm Agreement, saying "it provides a platform to help prepare for comprehensive negotiations with a new methodology that provides conditions for success and makes peace a necessity for all parties."
NAPP called on the government “to increase attention to the troops on the frontlines, provide the necessary military support, care for the wounded and the families of the martyrs and pay the salaries of the soldiers.” NAPP also stressed the importance of speeding up the implementation of Riyadh Agreement and condemned the assassination of political figures and party leaders, including the recent killing of the Islah party leader Abdulraqeeb Quzaya in Al-Dhale governorate.
