In the same resolution, the Security Council called on the Secretary-General to submit proposals by 31 December 2018 on how the United Nations will fully support the implementation of the Stockholm Agreement, including the content of the ceasefire and the redistribution of troops.

I would like to reaffirm our full support for humanitarian actors and their efforts in this difficult context. They must also be protected. Commercial and humanitarian access, which must be guaranteed, has been further hampered by the closure of the road between Aden and Sanaa, but also by other obstacles, namely the Houthis, who, as Mr Beasley has just described, are still threatening the country with starvation.

We therefore call on the parties to do everything in their power to facilitate the implementation of the humanitarian aid plan and to ensure full compliance with the principles of neutrality, independence, impartiality and humanity. The mission, which oversees the city and port of Hudaydah, as well as the ports of Salif and Ra`s Issa, will continue to lead and support the Redistribution Coordination Committee to monitor the redistribution of armed forces, demining operations and the government-wide ceasefire agreement reached in Stockholm in December 2018.
