Top member in the Supreme Political Council, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi has criticised the UN Security Council (UNSC) positions, and blamed it for the humanitarian disaster in Yemen.
“The Security Council “bears full responsibility for what has become of Yemen, after its decision to put Yemen under the Chapter VII of the UN Charter,” Mohammed Ali al-Houthi tweeted.
He stressed that the decision was based on misleading intelligence reports from coalition countries involved in the military aggression against Yemen, and accused the UNSC of decriminalising the coalition of invaders.
Al-Houthi called on the Security Council to oblige the United Nations to implement the agreement signed between it and the Republic of Yemen in regards to the Safer floating oil storage vessel, which is in the verge of causing a horrible environmental disaster.
“Any meeting of the Council that does not oblige the United Nations to implement the agreement, would be a failure. It is a testament to the responsibility of the Security Council, the United Nations, the US and its allies in the Saudi-led coalition in creating this catastrophe,” al-Houthi explained.
“The coalition’s countries do not allow the implementation of the Safer maintenance agreement, and deliberately cause every achievement reached by the Republic of Yemen to fail.”
“The countries of aggression in this way confirm the failure of the UN Envoy to Yemen in everything,” Mohammed al-Houthi said, denouncing their claims of concern for peace.
The tweets came hours before the Security Council was due to meet on the latest developments in the case of the Safer tanker, which has been anchoured for years off the port of Hodeidah province, amid fears of an oil spill that threatens to cause a major environmental disaster in the region.
