Oil minister demands UN to move for releasing oil derivatives ships
The Minister of Oil and Minerals, Ahmed Dares demanded on Friday the United Nations to move for release oil derivatives ships being seized by the US-Saudi-led aggression coalition countries.
The minister, during a protest rally that held in front of the UN headquarters in Sanaa, affirmed that the vital sectors and services would be stopped in the coming hours as a result of lack of the Yemeni Oil Company’s storage of oil derivatives.
The United Nations did not respond to the humanitarian appeals and calls that launched by authorities in Sanaa, and ignored the humanitarian suffering due to the continued detention of oil ships by the coalition, Dares stressed
The United Nations should be ashamed of the Yemeni people’s demands and appeals and carry out its duties in pressuring the coalition countries to release oil derivative ships and allow their entry into Hodeidah port to alleviate suffering of the Yemeni people, the minister said.
He held the United Nations fully responsible for the repercussions of the humanitarian catastrophe that threatens the Yemeni people in the event that ships continue to be detained.
