Al-Houthi comments UN statement on Yemen
Member of the Supreme Political Council, Mohammad Ali Al-Houthi, on Saturday, commented on the statement of the UN Secretary-General António Guterres, on Yemen.
Al-Houthi affirmed that the UN statement was positive step to drew the world’s attention to the suffering of the Yemeni people, as a result of the blockade imposed by the US-backed Saudi-led coalition on Yemen.
He called on Guterres to condemn and lift the blockade because of its violation of all international principles and laws, and the presence of the UN-licensed ships.
“We don’t not accept obstacles and call for a joint meeting with officials of international organizations to study the allegations of all obstacles and bring actual solutions,” al-Houthi said.
He pointed out that the deterioration of the Yemeni economy and its local currency has been a result of the failure of the coalition countries and their agent Hadi to fulfill their obligations.
Al-Houthi indicated that those obligations came as a result of the Security Council’s approval of the transfer of the Central Bank’s operations from the capital Sana’a.
