    SANAA Authentic Josh Anderson Jersey , Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- The latest clashes between two former allies in Yemen, the Houthis and former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, are set to aggravate the humanitarian crisis in the war-torn country.

    The two sides allied and seized power in late 2014, triggering a civil war and a military intervention by a coalition led by Saudi Arabia.

    "I expect the situation will be complicated and Saleh may not risk further if he does not receive sufficient support from regional players," Yaseen Al-Tamimi, a political writer and analyst Authentic Nick Foligno Jersey , told Xinhua.

    "The future of Sanaa is still uncertain. Both sides are using the hit-and-run tactics," he said, noting that it is difficult to drive Houthi forces out of Sanaa, if not impossible.

    The breakdown of the Houthi-Saleh alliance, seen as an alliance of convenience, was expected from the first day the it was announced. The Houthis can't forget the revenge for murdering their first leader in the first Saada war by the army of Saleh.

    There are several other reasons that led to the latest breakdown of their alliance.

    First Authentic David Savard Jersey , the Houthi actions to exclude Saleh are out of concern that Saleh would turn against them at any moment.

    Second, Saleh seeks to reach a deal with the Saudi-led coalition, which also hopes to do so amid growing criticism of Saudi Arabia and other members over the war and its catastrophic consequences in the Yemen, which faces one of the worst humanitarian crises.

    Third, reliable sources told Xinhua that the Houthis recently knew that Tariq, Saleh's nephew who worked as chief of the president guard and special forces before the 2011 protests Authentic Oliver Bjorkstrand Jersey , has been training forces to fight the Houthis.

    The Houthis, which warned Tariq several times over what he is doing, decided to turn against Saleh as they fear that he has received assurances and support from some of the Saudi-led coalition's members.

    In the meantime, the armed conflict between Saleh supporters and Houthi forces will exacerbate the humanitarian situation in Yemen.

    Ghamdan Al-Yousfi, a political analyst, told Xinhua that the war between Saleh and Houthis "will lead to closure of cities and cutting food supplies to the largest proportion of the population in the country".

    "It will be a total guerilla war that will see no end and add to deepening chaos here Authentic Ryan Murray Jersey ," he said.

    Around 23 million out of 27 million Yemeni population now live in the Houthi-run regions. The war-torn nation, which is also plagued by a severe cholera epidemic, is now coping with the world's largest humanitarian catastrophe as more than two thirds of the population need humanitarian assistance, the UN says.

    Radhwan Fari, a Yemeni journalist, said the Houthi-Saleh war adds to the obstacles facing the peace process in Yemen.

    "Many are optimistic this war will help end the conflict here. In my opinion Authentic Sonny Milano Jersey , the opposite is true," he said.

    "This war, or rather Saleh's move, came too late, I mean, after Houthis have become so strong Authentic Cam Atkinson Jersey , having seized most of the country's weapons and resources. In this current status, I think they even don't need foreign support," he added.

    While all signs show that the Saudi-led coalition may now think of supporting Saleh against the Iran-backed Houthis, observers argued that Iran will also not fail the Houthis.

    Faris Al-Beel, a political analyst and college professor, said Iran will do whatever it can to help Houthis militarily Authentic Matt Calvert Jersey , politically and economically.

    "Iran will not accept (the fate) to let Sanaa fall. If it fails to keep Sanaa under Houthi control, it will destabilize the city through systematic violence," Al-Beel said.

    NAIROBI Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- The China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative will assist partner countries to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a United Nations official said on Sunday.

    Jamil Ahmad, head of intergovernmental affairs at the UN Environment Program (UNEP), told Xinhua in Nairobi that the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road initiative and the SDGs are complimentary.

    "The Belt and Road Initiative provides a good example on how to begin implementation work for the SDGs whose aim is to improve the lives of all citizens of the world Authentic Alexander Wennberg Jersey ," Ahmad said.

    "The SDGs are exactly talking about the types of development that have been identified in the projects of the Belt and Road Initiative," he said during a forum on greening China's Belt and Road Initiative, which is part of the UN Science Policy Business Forum on the Environment.

    The initiative, comprising the overland Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road, aims to build a trade, investment and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along and beyond the ancient Silk Road trade routes.

    Ahmad noted that both the Belt and Road Initiative and the SDGs focus on five pillars which will improve the quality of lives of global citizens.

    He noted that the Belt and Road Initiative is an enormous project and so various UN agencies are working toward greater and broader partnerships with the Chinese government and partner countries to ensure successful implementation of the project.

    The UN Environment Program's role will be to ensure that environmental sustainability is incorporated into all aspects of the projects and programs Authentic Zach Werenski Jersey , he said.

    Ahmad said that the very basis of the Silk Road Economic Belt is to promote partnerships among governments and the private sector.

    UNEP has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Chinese government to provide expertise on green economy and financing for sustainable development for projects on the Belt and Road
