||<p>Since it came into effect in Hodeidah on 18 December, the fragile ceasefire has
continued to hold and there has been a general de-escalation by both sides around
the city. We are aware of reports of frontline incidents and skirmishing but these
remain low. We urge all parties to support and facilitate the UN’s efforts and to
implement the redeployment of forces in Hodeidah as agreed during the Stockholm talks.
We welcome the arrival of General Patrick Cammaert, Head of the UN Redeployment Coordination
Committee, and welcome the UK-drafted UN Security Council Resolution 2452 establishing
a six month UN mission to monitor the Hodeidah ceasefire.</p><p></p>
