Daily Noon Briefing Highlights – 18 March 2021


On the Safer tanker, the UN is still discussing with the Houthi – Ansar Allah – de facto authorities several logistical issues that have been delaying the mission.

When they approved the mission plan in November 2020, Ansar Allah also committed to facilitate mission preparations and logistics. The UN remains eager to help and implement the agreed mission plan and will continue to provide updates on progress in discussions.
