Minister of Oil and Minerals in the Sana’a government, Ahmed Daris, has on on Sunday handed a protest note to United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator William Gressly, concerning the Saudi-led coalition countries’ detention of UN-authorised fuel vessels.
The Oil Minister called on the UN to implement international laws and resolutions regarding the release of fuel and domestic gas ships.
In turn, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator expressed his astonishment at the continued Saudi detention of domestic gas ships, which are not related to any military activity.
“Any ship that obtains a permit from the UN inspection body must freely reach the port of Hodeida and all areas of the Republic of Yemen,” Gressly said.
