UN requests additional time to investigate possible danger in Yemeni floating oil tanker

The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS)’s team has on Friday requested addition time to study the technical observations that it discussed in Sana’a with the national advisory team regarding the floating oil tanker ship Safer.

The statement came during the UNOPS team meeting with Head of the Supreme Economic Committee of Yemen Hashim Ismail, as well as with Minister of Oil and Minerals Ahmed Daress and the national advisory team.

In the meeting, Ismail stressed the need to expedite the completion of an urgent maintenance agreement and a comprehensive evaluation of the ship Safer, in order to prevent any deterioration of the ship due to late maintenance.

He pointed out that the Foreign Ministry of the National Salvation Government has already provided all facilities and entry visas to the UN experts team.

In the same context, the Minister called for taking practical steps to avoid the deteriorating condition of the ship, as a result of the delay in maintenance, considering the repeated discussion of what has already agreed upon a waste of time.

The UNOPS team confirmed the United Nations’ readiness to fully cooperate with the maintenance of the Safer, as agreed upon earlier
