Supreme Economic Committee expresses disappointment on UN delays in salvaging Safer oil tanker

The Supreme Economic Committee in Sana’a has on Thursday warned of the risks of delaying the implementation of an urgent maintenance agreement and the comprehensive evaluation of the floating oil tanker platform Safer.

The committee explained in a statement, that since the National Salvation Government signed the agreement on November 11, the United Nations has not provided it with the copy of the agreement signed by it.

“This raises questions about hidden objectives and the truth of allegations of concern for the safety and security of the environment in the Red Sea,” the committee added.

In its statement, the Supreme Economic Committee reiterated that “the delay in signing the agreement by the United Nations will cause delay in the implementation of what was planned.”

The statement indicated that the committee was surprised by the United Nations’ announcement to postpone the arrival of experts until February 15 next year.

The committee called on the United Nations, after signing the agreement, to fully and transparently disclose the budget allocated to implementing an urgent maintenance and comprehensive evaluation of the oil vessel Safer.
