Almotamar.net - The Security Council urged on Tuesday all sides in Yemen to reject violence and show maximum restraint.
In a press statement, the Council expressed grave concern over what it said was a serious deterioration of the economic and humanitarian situation in Yemen amid worsening security, including the threat from Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.
"The members of the Security Council called upon all the parties to respect their obligations under applicable international law", said the statement, read to reporters by Ambassador Hardeep Singh Puri of India, which holds the Council's rotating presidency this month.
The council urged all parties in Yemen to ensure that those in need of humanitarian assistance can be reached, voicing concern over the increasing interruption of the flow of basic supplies. It called all parties to refrain from targeting vital infrastructure.
The statement was issued following a briefing to the Council by the United Nations Secretary-General Special Adviser Jamal Benomar.
Benomar has visited Yemen last July and held talks with all political powers on overcoming the current political crisis.
He asserted that the solution for the crisis was still possible, saying that the UN urged all the parties to reach an agreement acceptable to all sides.
