Yemen's parliament calls out suspicious activities of US and UN Envoys

The Yemeni Parliament has on Tuesday warned of the suspicious movements of the UN Envoy to Yemen, Hans Grundberg, and the American Envoy Tim Lenderking, accusing them of possibly being involved in the recent military escalations.

In its session chaired by Speaker Yahya Ali al-Ra’i, the Parliament referred to the two envoys’ meetings with Sultan al-Barakani, Muhammad al-Shaddadi, and others it described as “traitors” and “mercenaries of the Saudi-led coalition,” after it had previously voted to drop their membership in parliament.

The Parliament members stressed the importance of strengthening national unity and confronting all conspiracies targeting Yemen.

They affirmed that the Parliament of the Republic of Yemen, based in the capital, Sana’a, is the only constitutional and legitimate representative of the Yemeni people.

The members also called on the United Nations to assume its humanitarian and moral responsibilities, and “work to bring the perpetrators of war crimes against Yemeni children to international courts.”
