The Prime Minister of the National Salvation Government of Yemen had called on the new UN Envoy for Yemen, Hans Grundberg , to bypass certain UN Security Council resolutions he called “wrong”.
During an event held by the General Secretariat of the Prime Minister on Saturday, to celebrate the seventh anniversary of the September 21 Revolution, Prime Minister Abdulaziz bin Habtoor made it clear that “the war is being waged by Saudi Arabia and the Emirates, from whose territories warplanes are launched to kill the Yemeni people.”
“The new envoy must understand that Sana’a is committed to the option of a single Yemeni state, independence of decision-making and identity, and not to compromise its sovereignty,” Bin Habtoor stressed.
“If the new UN envoy repeats the same thing that has been chanted about the war in Yemen for the past seven years, he will not reach a solution,” he added.
For his part, Deputy Prime Minister for Defence and Security Affairs, Lieutenant-General Jalal al-Rowaishan, pointed out that Hans Grundberg’s briefing “speaks of the party that is imposing war and siege as if it were the one being oppressed.”
Al-Ruwaishan stressed that the UN mechanism for dealing with the aggression on Yemen “has become exhausted and useless, and will not achieve peace, stop the war nor lift the siege.”
“The new UN envoy is concerned with impartiality and freedom from pressure from major countries,” he added.
