Safer Agreement committee Chairman reveals maintenance delay reasons of FSO Safer

SANA’A, Feb. 22 (Saba) – The head of the supervisory committee for the urgent maintenance agreement and comprehensive evaluation of the “Safer” floating tank confirmed on Sunday that the committee carries out its duties to the fullest with full cooperation from the relevant authorities.

In a statement to Saba, the head of the committee, Ibrahim al-Serraji, denied what was stated by the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Mark Lowcock, in his briefing to the Security Council about notification to the United Nations to stop preparations for the implementation of the urgent maintenance agreement and the comprehensive evaluation of the floating tank Safer.
Al-Serraji explained every postponement of the arrival date of the UN experts is unilaterally carried out by the United Nations for reasons of its own, and the National Salvation Government has nothing to do with Sana’a for those reasons.
He pointed out after signing the agreement, the United Nations set February, 15 as the date for the start of the mission, then later informed the date of the postponement of next March, 1, and attributed this to a delay in the delivery of materials purchased by the companies that contracted with it.
The head of the committee also confirmed that there is a framework that has been completed and agreed upon.
He said, “We respect this agreement and hope that it will also be respected by the United Nations.”
