G20’s aid to Yemen third of its arms exports to Saudi Arabia: Oxfam

SANA’A, Oxfam said that the Group of Twenty countries (the G-20) have exported weapons worth more than $17 billion to Saudi Arabia since the beginning of the aggression on Yemen in 2015.

Meanwhile, these countries have only grant a third of the figure to Yemen which suffers from the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, Oxfam said in a statement upon an upcoming meeting of the G20, which will be hosted by Saudi Arabia.

It confirmed that the total value of arms exports from some G20 countries to the Aggression coalition countries rose to at least $31.4 billion between 2015 and 2019, according to the latest available records.

According to Oxfam, this amount is five times higher than the amount provided by G20 member states to Yemen between 2015 and 2020.

Oxfam said the UN humanitarian response plan for providing clean water, food and medical care in Yemen is extremely vulnerable.
