Foreign Minister of Yemen calls for additional pressure on Saudis to release petroleum ships

Yemen’s Foreign Minister Hisham Sharaf Abdullah has called on the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths, as well as several ambassadors of Yemen’s peace process sponsors, to put additional efforts into immediately release ships laden with oil derivatives, and allow them to enter and unload the port of Hodeidah in order to end the severe oil derivatives crisis.

In a statement to Saba News Agency, Hisham Sharaf said the coalitions’ continued implementation of a policy of collective punishment against the Yemeni people and the preventing of the entry of ships loaded with oil derivatives do not contribute in any way to the push towards a peaceful political settlement.

He pointed out that the declaration of the two countries of Saudi-Emirati aggression about their alleged “support for humanitarian relief work”in Yemen, collides with the fact that they continue to practice the policy of starvation by preventing the entry of ships loaded with oil derivatives and necessary goods to the port of Hodeidah .

“Sana’a will not stand idly by as some believe, and if their blockade continues on Yemen’s ports, the ports of enemies will not be safe,” he concluded.
