Yemeni Foreign Minister: There is no time for hypocritical diplomatic courtesies

Yemen’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hisham Sharaf, had commented on the statement of the so-called Quartet (the countries leading aggression against Yemen), saying that “there is no time for and no point in more hypocrisy and diplomatic courtesies at the expense of the freedom and interest of Yemen and its people.”

Minister Sharaf confirmed that the statement of the aggression countries after their meeting last Wednesday, is “nothing more than a statement of courtesy to the international community, promoting the Saudi-Emirati aggression as doves of peace.”

“The statement proves to those familiar with the reality of the situation in Yemen that the countries of the Saudi-Emirati aggression are living in a state of illusion, and that they are far from having any intention of real peace or ceasefire and from fixing their mistakes in Yemen. They do not value the human suffering of the Yemeni people,” Minister Sharaf said.

He advised the so-called Quartet, to “recognise before the world in an explicit statement that the Saudi-led aggression is the main driver of the war in Yemen since March 2015.”

“I advise the group of the Quartet and the aggression to accept negotiations with Sana’a to end the aggression, under the auspices of the UN or through international participation that includes Russia, China, Germany and any of the Gulf states that do not support the US-Saudi aggression,” the minister added.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs reiterated Yemen’s “clear and serious welcome for a comprehensive and just peace without any conditions affecting national sovereignty and the independence of Yemeni sovereignty.”

Minister Sharaf sent a direct message to Riyadh, Abu Dhabi, Washington and London to take into account credibility and clarity in any upcoming direction or any of its statements before the international community when it calls for peace and an end to war.
