Resolution adopted by the Schiller Institute Conference in Bad Soden
November 26, 2017
Given the documented fact that the war on Yemen, waged by the Saudi-led coalition since March 2015 on Yemen, has caused an unprecedented humanitarian crisis in this country as a result of the bombardment of the country’s infrastructure and the total blockade imposed by air, land and sea, the attendees of the Nov. 25-26, 2017 Schiller Institute international conference in Bad Soden, Germany call for:
1. An immediate ceasefire by all parties.
2. The lifting of the blockades imposed on the country, especially the port of Hodeida port and the Sanaa International Airport, allowing in immediate humanitarian aid.
3. The return to the national reconciliation process and dialogue that was underway but was interrupted by the war. (This negotiation process needs to be conducted under the UN umbrella, by only Yemeni national factions without interference of regional or global powers, but with sponsorship of Russia, China, and the United States as guarantors of the implementation of the final outcome of the dialogue.) The purpose of such negotiations is to find a political solution to the crisis in Yemen.
4. Assisting Yemen in a rapid and large-scale reconstruction process focussed on infrastructure projects to regain the livelihood of the nation, and the integration of Yemen into the Belt and Road Initiative
