SANAA, Prime Minister Dr. Abdulaziz bin Habtoor on Saturday discussed with the United Nations Resident Representative and Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen Lise Grande a number of humanitarian issues.
The meeting dealt with the medical air bridge to transport patients whose medical conditions require travel abroad for treatment and the proposed alternatives to alleviate their suffering as they travel from Sanaa to Aden and Sayoun airports.
The prime minister and Grande discussed the situation in the port of Hodeidah and the four fuel vessels prevented from entering the port by the coalition despite obtaining permits from the United Nations, which requires a strict UN position condemning this barbaric act as a war crime and a collective punishment against the Yemeni people.
They also touched on the suffering of military and security retirees because of the suspension of pensions for about three years, and the United Nation's role in pressuring on the other party to pay their pensions just like it was done in the civil sector.
The meeting reviewed the coordination role of the United Nations to re-benefit from the electricity of Marib gas-powered station to alleviate the suffering of citizens, especially with the advent of summer.
