Joint minister conference discusses consequences of Saudi siege on Yemeni public life

The service sectors in Yemen confirmed on Tuesday that health, electrical, water, transportation, hygiene and other services are threatened with suspension as a result of the lack of oil and the prevention of their entry.

The US-Saudi aggression has imposed blockade on Yemen and prevents the entry of fuel ships to Hodeidah port.

During a press conference over the repercussions of the siege and piracy on fuel ships in the capital, Sana’a, the Acting Minister of Human Rights, Ali al-Dailami, explained that the United Nations has not performed its humanitarian duties as it should during the past seven years of aggression.

He pointed out that the US-Saudi blockade on fuel ships and its imposed mechanisms fueled the war and prolongs it.

For his part, the Minister of Fisheries Wealth Muhammad Al-Zubayri said: “The United Nations does not have a decision and what it has been doing in Yemen for seven years is only to serve the US-Saudi aggression.”

He stressed that “the US-Saudi blockade, with international complicity, wants to snatch all morsels from the mouths of Yemenis, however the Yemenis will not be satisfied with this matter.”

In turn, Ahmed Al-Alii, Minister of Electricity, stressed that “today Yemenis are interested in taking a serious stand against American arrogance and international complicity to confront their stifling siege that has affected everything in the country.”

The statement blessed the siege-breaking pperations, stressing that this is the only solution and way out for the Yemeni people to defend their right to live in dignity.
