Deputy FM of Yemen: Continued Saudi siege is an obstacle to achieving peace

Deputy Foreign Minister of Yemen, Hussein Al-Ezzi, has on Tuesday sent an important message to the Saudi-led coalition forces at home and abroad, considering their siege of the Yemeni people “a cause of war and an obstacle to understanding.”

“The blockade is a cause of war and an obstacle to [mutual] understanding, and it is not permissible to link it to issues of a military and political nature,” Al-Ezzi said in a message.

“Therefore, it is important to open the ports and airports, with them not being affected by the mercenaries’ disruptions.”

He added, “You must know that peace this year would be better and easier than [achieving] peace in the coming years.”

In another message addressed to the coalition forces at home, Al-Ezzi said: “As for you mercenaries, we say to you that it is honour for us that we are calling for re-opening the airport and ports in order to serve the people and alleviate their suffering; whereas for you it suffices as a mark of shame that you are begging the outside world [for the right] to continue to close the airport and to besiege and starve the people.”

“These two positions alone are sufficient for the people and the world to distinguish between truth and falsehood,” the Deputy Minister concluded.
