Yemen, the Security Council and a resolution to continue the aggression!


Diplomatic moves and the possibility of replacing Security Council Resolution 2216 against Yemen will not be successful if it fails to adequately address Sanaa's central concerns, including lifting the siege and halting Saudi airstrikes.

NOURNEWS - Recent efforts to draft new UN Security Council resolutions on the Yemen crisis could be analyzed in light of past experience in increasing pressure on the NSG to accept the demands of Saudi Arabia and its allies, and its positive role in the ending of this crisis seems unexpected.

The pro-Saudi Western and Arab governments hope to reach an alternative draft of Resolution 2216 at the next UN Security Council meeting.

The resolution, passed on April 14, 2015 in connection with the Yemeni war, endorsed the legitimacy of the resigned Yemeni head of state without addressing military attacks by Saudi Arabia and its allies.

The resolution is a major factor in the bloody war in Yemen, and the famine in the country is due to the siege that is predicted.

"An international and regional consensus is being formed to repeal Resolution 2216 on Yemen and replace it with a new one," Al-Mayadin reported, citing efforts for an alternative resolution, quoting an informed source.

The new resolution calls on all political and military parties in Yemen to negotiate peace, an issue that will further shake the position of the ousted government of Mansoura Hadi and pave the way for his ouster, and hence the current consultations on discussing a model. The alternative is focused on his government.

At the same time, a group of Democratic and Republican senators called for increased financial support to deal with the Yemeni humanitarian crisis in a letter to the Yemeni government, citing the efforts of Chris Murphy in the United States.

Murphy also told the media, emphasizing Iran's role in achieving peace that it would be difficult to reach a ceasefire in Yemen as long as economic sanctions against Iran continue.

The visit of US Deputy Secretary of State Linder King to the region in recent days and meetings with officials of the Gulf states, especially the Saudis, also show another side of the recent diplomatic moves around Yemen.

The orientation of US diplomats indicates that they are trying to bring more alignment in Saudi Arabia than a temporary ceasefire in Yemen.

Two months ago, at the end of the sixth year of the military invasion of Yemen, Saudi Arabia proposed an initiative that was unsuccessful by the Yemeni National Salvation Government because it was considered "unrealistic and a repetition of the aggressors' demands."

The Yemeni government of national salvation is emphasizing the cessation of ground and air strikes and the lifting of the six-year siege as the first step towards a ceasefire in the country, an issue that has not been addressed in the plans so far.

Yemeni officials have stressed in response; The plans put forward so far ignore the brutal siege of Yemen and seek to limit the conflict, not the ceasefire. Sanaa has repeatedly stated that it wants peace and has not started a war from the beginning.

Although the Biden government has stated that it wants to end the war in Yemen and has made a series of efforts in this direction, it agrees with the Saudi and Emirati officials in feeling threatened by the consolidation of Ansar al-Islam in the country.

What has been the main obstacle to the success of the talks so far has been the main orientation of the proposed plans in favor of the Saudi and Emirati aggressors, which have been set up with the aim of weakening Ansar al-Islam and the Yemeni National Salvation Government.

The Saudi coalition and its Western backers see the rise of Ansar al-Islam and the Yemeni Shiites as synonymous with Iran's growing influence in the region, a view that has not changed so far, based on Resolution 2216, which has led to the current catastrophic situation.

Shiites make up 45 percent of Yemen's population but have been ousted since 1962. Yemen's Shiite imams, who have a history of nearly 1,200 years in the country, lost power with the intervention of the Egyptian army and the proclamation of a republic in the country. The Shiite population has always been oppressed by the government during these years.

For Saudi Arabia and its allies, the ideal situation is to return to the pre-Islamic Awakening era and establish a dependent, pro-Western and anti-Shiite government in the country. Even if their failure on the ground and the success of the NSA's resistance policy have moderated Riyadh's expectations, Ansar al-Islam's share of power, commensurate with Yemen's Shiite population, is seen as highly threatening to the Saudi-American coalition.

The increasing success of the Yemeni army and people's forces in the imposed war against the country, especially the advance of these forces in the strategic province of Ma'rib, is the most important factor that can be mentioned for the US diplomatic efforts.

The dire humanitarian situation in Yemen, which has been cited as the reason for Washington and the Security Council's efforts to extinguish the ceasefire, has been going on for more than six years and is now being used only to put more pressure on the NSG.

Diplomatic moves and the possibility of replacing Security Council Resolution 2216 against Yemen will not be successful if it fails to adequately address Sanaa's central concerns, including lifting the siege and halting Saudi airstrikes.

Given the principled stance of the United States and Saudi Arabia against the Yemeni Shiites, these measures can only be considered as a means to stop the progress of the National Salvation Government and put more pressure on Sanaa.

Even leaving Mansour Hadi as a hated and dependent figure in Yemen will never mean accepting the position of Ansarullah and his allies, and it is only a change at the tactical level.
