Muhsin Siddiquey, Oxfam Yemen Country Director, said:
"The agreement gives hope to Yemenis during a dark time. But that hope is fragile while fighting continues, salaries remain unpaid and hunger and disease claim lives. The agreement lays a promising foundation for peace in Yemen, which needs to be built upon constructively and quickly. The peace negotiations should also include more women's voices.
“It should be a stepping stone towards a country-wide ceasefire and urgent action to stabilize the economy, along with fully functioning air and sea ports. Under attack from hunger, disease and violence, Yemenis need peace now."
