On Yemen, ICP Asks UK and France If Hadi Should Cede Power, Video Here

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS,  October 31 -- The Saudi led coalition bombed the funeral of the father of Yemen interior minister Jalal al-Roweishan in Sana'a on October 8, the same day the UN Security Council met about airstrikes in Syria.

Inner City Press asked Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the UN Abdallah Yahya A. Al-Mouallimi to confirm it was an Saudi strike and explain it. He said, "I am not aware of it." Vine video here.

After Saudi Arabia was re-elected to the UN Human Rights Council on October 28, with the votes of 152 of the 193 member states, the Saudi-led Coalition's bombing of Yemen picked up pace, including killing detainees in Al Hudaydah.

On October 31 outside the UN Security Council, Inner City Press asked UK ambassador Matthew Rycroft if Hadi should cede power. Beyond the Vine video here; UK transcript here:

Inner City Press: Should President Hadi cede power to a new vice president. That’s what people are saying is in the Road Map. Is it time for him to put the larger picture ahead of himself?
Rycroft: We support the Special Envoy’s Road Map, and you’re right that part of the Road Map is on the political process and a longer term political settlement for Yemen, and the other part of it is the security. And taken together, they provide a balanced package that will allow all of the relevant parties to move forward, including in the longer term a new governing structure and new governing people to take Yemen forward.

   Inner City Press put the same question to French Ambassador Francois Delattre, who said it would require too long an answer. Video here: including Inner City Press' "you know where to find us."
