Yemen (IP) -Yemen's National Salvation Government official says in case his people's demands are fulfilled, Yemen accepts the extension of the ceasefire with Saudi Arabia.

Iran PressMiddle East: Mohammad Abdul Salam said in a tweet that in his meeting with the UN Special Envoy for Yemen's Affairs Hans Grundberg, he stressed the Yemeni people's demands:

"In the meeting with the UN representative, we emphasized our firm position of reopening Sana'a airport and al-Hodeidah ports and paying the salaries of the employees and retirees."

He pointed out that without the essential humanitarian demands being fulfilled, talking about peace in Yemen was of no credibility.

The demands of the Yemenis came as Grundberg emphasized the importance of extending the ceasefire for a longer time.

Grundberg had meetings on Tuesday with the Omani Foreign Minister Badr al-Busaeedi and other country officials in Muscat, appreciating the vital role of Oman in supporting the UN's efforts to settle peace in the region.

UN Security Council: There is no military solution to crisis in Yemen  

Earlier, in a message to the participating countries at the 77th meeting of the UN General Assembly, Yemeni Foreign Minister Husham Sharaf stressed the invading countries' attempt to weaken the current ceasefire and evade its implementation and keep Yemen in limbo between war and peace was utterly unacceptable. 

Sharaf said: "The position of Sanaa is clear; ending the military aggression against Yemen, lifting the all-out blockade on the country and achieving a peaceful political solution to the crisis, as well as establishing stable peace and good relations with the neighboring countries based on the principle of non-interference in internal affairs of Yemen." 

With the support of the United States, the UAE, and several other countries, Saudi Arabia launched a military invasion of Yemen in March 2015, putting a land, sea, and air siege on the impoverished country.

Saudi Arabia's warmongering in Yemen has killed hundreds of thousands of Yemenis, injured tens of thousands, and displaced millions.

The military aggression has also destroyed more than 85 percent of Yemen's infrastructure, leaving the country severely short of food and medicine.
