In response to the Biden administration revoking the terrorist designations of the Houthis in Yemen, Oxfam America's Humanitarian Policy Lead Scott Paul said:

By

“We welcome the Biden administration's decision to revoke the designations of the Houthis as a terrorist organization.

“This purely counterproductive designation had caused months of uncertainty as aid organizations, banks and importers of critical commodities like food and fuel were left in limbo. As the Biden administration has made clear, it is the humanitarian consequences of the designation, not the conduct of the de facto authorities, that warrants this reversal.

“Unfortunately, even with the designations revoked, we’re back to the previous and unacceptable status quo where millions of people still face extreme hunger, cholera, COVID-19 and daily violations by warring parties more interested in their own military advancement than the basic needs and rights of Yemenis. International and Yemeni humanitarian organizations are still not saving as many lives as they could because of a lack of funding and unacceptable interference by the parties. Aid has not, and cannot, meet the needs of Yemen’s vulnerable people alone.

"The only way to prevent greater suffering is through an inclusive, political settlement that enables an equitable economic recovery. For any progress in Yemen to be sustainable, women must be afforded their rightful place at any negotiating table. The international community needs to stop fueling the conflict, generously fund Yemen’s humanitarian response and prioritize peace.”
