The United Nations has criticized the establishment of Yemen’s “national salvation” government by the Houthi movement and its allies that were sworn in by the Supreme Political Council in the country’s capital of Sanaa.

The new government replaced the Supreme Political Council, which was established by the Houthis and the party of former president Ali Hadi.

UN Special Envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed referred to it as “a new and unnecessary obstacle” for peace talks, according to a statement released on Tuesday, despite the Houthis assuring that the new government will not stall the UN-brokered talks.

“Yemen is at a critical juncture. The actions recently taken by Ansarullah and the General People’s Congress will only complicate the search for a peaceful solution. The parties must hold Yemen’s national interests above narrow partisan ambitions and take immediate steps to end political divisions and address the country’s security, humanitarian and economic challenges,” read the statement.

“I ask the representatives of Ansarullah and the General People’s Congress to re-think their approach and demonstrate their commitment to the peace process with concrete actions,” added the statement.

US aren’t in Yemen, dude! Before things went SHTF they had DIA operatives collaborating with the… Houthis (yeeeeees!) to f**k up AQAT and well, the Pentagon was not rally happy when KSA began to attack their Houthi friends!

Sorry, but you are completely not aware of what is happening in Yemen. Us special forces were in Yemen specifically in Al-Aned air base to organize some air-strikes using drones against AQAP.
