Foreign Minister in the National Salvation Government of Yemen, Hisham Sharaf, has on Monday called on the American and British administrations to pressure the Saudi regime to immediately lift the siege on Sana’a International Airport and all Yemeni ports.
In response to the US and British foreign ministers’ statements and their call for Sana’a to commit to an immediate ceasefire, Sharaf said: “this talk should be directed at the aggressors against Yemen, who continue to bomb us, impose a blockade on Yemeni ports and airports, and prevent the entry of oil and medicine ships.”
The Foreign Minister considered the US and British statements an attempt to “shuffle the cards in front of the world, and throw the ball into the court of Sana’a, as if we were the aggressor and the ones who started this unjust war.”
“The positions of the American and British administrations fall within the framework of international political hypocrisy, and are aimed at pleasing the Saudi regime so they wo continue buying weapons,” he added.
Sharaf stressed that such biased statements to the aggressor party “will never contribute to achieving a desired peace.”
