According to Politico, the resolution "publicly acknowledges the Pentagon has been sharing targeting information and refueling warplanes that Saudi Arabia and other allies are using to attack Houthi rebels".

"The country is still facing the world's largest cholera outbreak and 7 million people are on the brink of starvation, including some two million severely malnourished children".

He did not give any reasons for the reopening of the port, which is located in the south of the country - though the coalition greatly controls Aden. The humanitarian situation in the war-ravaged Yemen is now one of the deadliest in the world as starvation and lack of medical supplies leave millions at risk - the Saudi blockade of Yemen has added to the country's woes.

Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from Djibouti.

The ambassador also said the Houthi-controlled ports, including Hodeida, should remain closed and he called on UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to send a delegation to Riyadh to "review current procedures to enhance and deliver a more robust verification and inspection mechanism aimed at facilitating the flow of humanitarian and commercial shipments while preventing the smuggling of weapons, ammunition, missile parts and cash".

Meanwhile, Minister of Local Administration, Abdul Raqeeb Fateh said that the Yemeni government welcomed the statement issued by Saudi Arabia's United Nations ambassador to reopen the seaports and airports of Yemen's liberated area in the next 24 hours.

Saudi Arabia has accused arch-foe Iran of supplying the ballistic missile which was shot down near Riyadh airport without causing any casualties.

The United Nations and global aid organizations have repeatedly criticized the coalition in the past for blocking aid access, especially to the north, which is held by the Iran-aligned Houthis battling the Saudi-led coalition.

Thousands of Yemenis took to the streets of the capital Sanaa on Monday to protest the closure of Yemen's ports by a Saudi-led military coalition.
