Mohammed Abdulsalam calls out hypocrisy of US calls for ceasefire negotiations in Yemen

The head of the Yemeni national negotiating delegation, Mohammad Abdulsalam, has commented on the US State Department’s statement calling for a “comprehensive ceasefire and entering into negotiations among all Yemeni parties to end the conflict in Yemen.”

“About 14 oil ships have been detained in the Red Sea for more than a year, although they have taken all measures imposed arbitrarily by the Saudi-led coalition forces,” Abdulsalam reminded on Twitter in response to the US State Department statement that followed a Yemeni army attack targeting oil refineries of Aramco in the Saudi capital Riyadh.

Abdulsalam called out what he saw as hypocrisy in the US rhetoric about peace negotiations while Washington refuses to stop supporting the Saudi invasion and blockade that is starving the Yemeni people.
