`UN :` Security Council ‘set to `Adopt Sanctions’ aimed at those `Obstructing,Undermining `Political Transition’ in Yemen’

#AceWorldNews says the UN Security Council is set to adopt a resolution ordering sanctions against figures seeking to undermine Yemen’s state-building drive, AFP reported, citing diplomats.

Sanctions would be aimed at those who are found to be “obstructing or undermining the successful completion of the political transition” in Yemen.

The measures will also concern those who commit “attacks on essential infrastructure or acts of terrorism” and who violate human rights and international humanitarian law.

The draft resolution hits offenders with a travel ban and an asset freeze “for an initial period of one year.”
