The Head of United Nations Mission to Support the Hodeida Agreement (UNMHA(, Indian Lieutenant General Abhijit Guha, arrived in the Yemeni capital Sana`a for the first time since taking office last Saturday.
A shipping source at Sana`a International Airport told "Debriefer" news agency that General Guha and his delegation arrived at the airport before noon.
General Guha started his mission from Riyadh on Sunday. He met with the team of the Yemen`s internationally recognized government in the Redeployment Coordination Committee, and the Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs in that government, Mansour Bagash. He also met with Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir.
The newly-appointed Indian General Abhijit Guha will later set the date for his RCC first meeting.
Yemen has been racked by a 4.5-year bloody conflict between the Yemeni government's forces, backed by a Saudi-led coalition, and the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels who ousted the government in 2014.
Parties to the 4-year war in Yemen, after 8-day peace talks in Sweden, reached on the 13th of last December an agreement providing for ceasefire in Hodeida and redeployment of both sides' forces, exchanging prisoners and alleviating blockade imposed by Houthis on Taiz.
But none of this has taken so far, with both sides trading blames for trying to thwart the deal.
