A spokesman for the Yemeni Ansarullah movement said that the UN envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths is acting as a British envoy in UN uniform.

Iran PressMiddle East: Yemeni Ansarullah's spokesman Mohammad Abdul Salam in his Twitter responded to Griffiths' concern about the alleged resumption of hostilities in eastern Yemen.

In response to this claim, Mohammad Abdul Salam said: "As is the logic of the British ambassador, Griffiths also calls the actions of those who defend their nation, hostile.

He also accused the United Nations of insisting on an approach regarding the four sides of the Yemen war (the United States, the UK, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates) that would lead to the continued suffering of the Yemeni people.

Mohammad Abdul Salam, who heads the negotiating team in his group, also said that anyone who mediates peace must correct his double standard logic and approach.

Earlier, Martin Griffiths expressed concern about what he called the resumption of hostilities in the eastern Yemeni province of Ma'rib. 219
