Tawakkol Karman hails UNSC resolution on Yemen 

Activist and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Tawakkol Karman applauded the UN Security Council's resolution 2140 over the political process in Yemen.  

In a statement on Facebook, she said: "the resolution has neither contained sanctions on Yemen’s state nor called for a military intervention in Yemen. Therefore, it is not correct to say there is a foreign mandate on Yemen or its sovereignty has been attacked". 
It called for general sanctions primarily freezing assets and travel bans on individuals, organizations or countries that may threaten the national unity, peace and stability, undermine the political process or implementation of the national dialog's outcomes in Yemen or commit terrorist attacks against people and infrastructures and human rights abuses, she said. 
“Moreover, it supports issuing a law to recover public funds stolen by the former regime, forming a committee to investigate crimes against protesters during the 2011's revolution, restoring the rule of law across Yemen, disarming militias and issuing a transitional justice law in line with international norms and accords”, she added.
