SANAA, The Supreme Political Council’s member Mohammad Ali al-Houthi met on Tuesday via teleconference the Envoy of the Secretary-General of the United Nations to Yemen Martin Griffiths.
In the meeting, the Supreme Political Member pointed out that talking about any dialogue before stopping the aggression, lifting the siege, distributing State employees salaries, implementing confidence-building steps promised by the UN envoy previously, and obtaining the commitments of the US-Saudi forces to implement them would not be feasible.
” Yemeni People and their leadership aspire to peace and have presented fair ideas without any prejudice, based on the public interest,” al-Houthi said in a statement.
Al-Houthi stressed that the continued blockade against Yemen, the closure of Sana’a Int. Airport and the ban on the port of Hodeidah, were hindering government efforts to prepare for a response to the coronavirus.
He added, “The ban on the Yemeni air and sea ports includes medical equipment and medicines, which means the need for the passage of nearly a month and a half for the arrival of ventilators and medications in the event that they are shipped immediately from Dubai, Amman or Egypt to Yemen.”
He reaffirmed the readiness to form operations room linking the regions throughout Yemen and exchanging information about the coronavirus, pointing the need to find a unified mechanism on organizing the movement of citizens between the regions and governorates, in a manner that guarantees confronting Corona and preventing its entry.
