Yemeni diplomat condemns hypocritical difference between Western approaches to Yemen and Ukraine

Member of the National Delegation Abdul-Malik al-Ajri has mocked Western duplicity in dealing with the crises of Ukraine and Yemen.

“Western countries demand the opening of safe corridors for the passage of civilians in Ukraine at a time when the Yemeni tragedy is being ignored and the US-Saudi aggression has closed all safe ports for Yemenis,” al-Ajri wrote in his Twitter account on Sunday.

“The countries of aggression closed the port of Hodeidah, the only outlet left for more than 25 million people, to create a suffocating crisis in oil, food and medicine,” he added.

“As soon as the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, launched an official appeal to fund the United Nations humanitarian operations in Ukraine, aid poured in from all sides towards Ukraine, even though the war had only passed for few days, and the number of refugees did not reach a few thousand.

The US-Saudi aggression against Yemen has been committing massacres for the past seven years against the Yemeni people.

They killed tens of thousands of children and women, destroyed the Yemeni infrastructure, and imposed a comprehensive siege on the Yemeni people. Then the Yemeni crisis turned into the largest human tragedy in the modern era, according to the testimony of the United Nations, where a Yemeni child dies every eight minutes.

The countries, which are crying over the besieged people in Ukraine and calling for safe corridors to be found, impose a suffocating siege on the Yemeni people, as there are no safe corridors in Yemen.

The US-Saudi aggression is sowing death in Yemen, in front of the hypocritical Western world, whose Security Council recently issued a resolution condemning Yemen because it is defending itself against the aggressors.

This Council has been crying for the past seven days over the Ukrainian people, in front of the aggressors, without providing a reason for separating the two aggressors.”

Saudi Arabia and the UAE, backed by the United States and regional allies, launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi back to power.

The war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead and displaced millions more. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases there.
