It is widely believed that the UN envoy, who has not yet set a date for the resumption of consultations and meetings of the Joint Coordinating Committee - completely Stumbling- in al-Hodeida is now looking for additional "political fuel" in Washington and counting on US pressure on the Legitimate government and the Arab Coalition. as the Houthi militias is the responsibility of Tehran and have no place of political pressure by Washington.

Specific ideas have yet to be formulated on the next step for the UN envoy to resume consultations on the implementation of the three Stockholm Conventions, notably al-Hodeida Agreement, a chronic withdrawal mechanism, and retreat from'' the unilateral withdrawal - the Houthi play of changing costumes, which has  become  the subject of controversy and criticism of the UN mission in al-Hodeida city.

Griffiths ignored the reference in his meeting with the chairman of the Houthi militias delegation in the Omani capital of Muscat last week, where he also met with the Omani Foreign Minister Yousef bin Alawi to "discuss the peace process and the implementation of the Stockholm agreement and stressed the importance of Oman in achieving peace in Yemen."

The Special UN envoy for Yemen met the UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash and UAE Minister Reem al-Hashimi, stressing that " the UAE's commitment and its support encourages us to continue our efforts."

He began his tour in Riyadh. He met with the two vice presidents and the foreign minister in the Legitimate government. In remarks to Asharq al-Awsat on Thursday, Griffiths said that consultations with the government side and the Houthi militias would resume as soon as possible according to the three references, without specifying a date.

He expressed his desire to implement the Stockholm Agreement "urgently", he re-linked this to what he called "the achievement of collective responsibility of the concerned parties ", a vague phrase adding further ambiguity.
