SANA'A, Jan. 12 (Saba) – The member of the British House of Commons, Andrew Mitchell, concluded Thursday a three-day visit to Yemen, where he met with senior Yemeni officials to discuss political and humanitarian situations in the country.
"I will convey the human suffering I watched closely to the members of the British House of Commons who have expressed in previous statements their concerns about what is going on in Yemen," Mitchell said in a press conference held before he left the capital Sana'a.
Mitchell said he will demand the British government to exert all efforts to help force cease fire, resume peace negotiations, end war and achieve peace in Yemen.
He also called for immediate lift to the all-out blockade imposed on Yemen and ease entering humanitarian aid to the Yemeni people.
Mitchell also said that he discussed, during his meetings with several senior Yemeni officials, suggestions and views to bridge a Yemeni-Saudi dialogue and Yemeni-Yemeni talks that aim to restore security and stability to Yemen.
Mitchell promised to convey such suggestions and views to the members of the British House of Commons to pressure the British government for further efforts to establish peace in Yemen.
Mitchell was seen off at the Sana'a International Airport by the head of the foreign ministry's Europe department, Faisal Abu Ras, and head of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), George Khoury.
