Yemen calls directly on several countries to aid in breaking Saudi-imposed illegal blockade

Speaker of the Shura Council of Yemen Mohammed al-Aidarous has on Saturday messages to the heads of the upper houses of parliament in Malaysia, Pakistan, Indonesia, Iran, Russia, China, Japan, India, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Australia, Argentina and Brazil.

The letters included a briefing of the ongoing arbitrary measures taken by the Saudi-Emirati aggression coalition against Yemen, in particular focusing on maritime piracy against oil ships.

The statement pointed out that these arbitrary measures come despite the fact that these oil vessels have obtained permits by the United Nations and are subject to inspection procedures in Djibouti.

The letters considered that these measures against the Yemeni people aim to further increase the human suffering, pointing out these measures come within the framework of the policy of collective punishment pursued by the aggression for several years.

The Speaker’s letters held the United Nations and the international community responsible for their silence about the crimes and humanitarian catastrophe the Yemeni people are suffering in all areas of life.

The letters called on the Senate, Shura Council and similar councils in those countries to take on their humanitarian responsibility and press the United Nations to carry out its urgent humanitarian role to end the all-inclusive economic blockade on Yemen.
