Yemeni diplomat: Truce is not completely satisfactory, but serves immediate need

Member of the National Delegation, Abdul-Malik al-Ejri, has confirmed that “the truce does not meet the minimum requirements and demands of Yemeni people, and the goal is complete lifting of the siege and all measures that affect the lives of citizens.”

He added that only as a result of the intransigence that faced Yemeni people from the US-Saudi aggression in economic issues, the lack of fuel, and the approaching month of Ramadan, this temporary truce was reached.

He also explained that “the US-Saudi aggression focuses on the siege to stifle the Yemeni people after their military and political failure, so they resorted to economic war and starvation.”

Al-Ejri said that this truce comes as a ways to “alleviate the suffering of our people and pave the way for a comprehensive lifting of the siege and a final solution.”

He stressed that in this truce, allowing entry of fuel tankers is the evidence that the US-Saudi aggression is behind economic suffering of Yemeni people, pointing out that the US-Saudi aggression stopped the fuel tankers arbitrarily and without any justification.
