Yemeni diplomat Abdul-Malik al-Ajri: Saudi and UN dedication to truce has been disappointing

Member of the National Delegation, Abdul-Malik Al-Ajri, has held the UN and Saudi-led aggression coalition responsible for obstructing the military and humanitarian truce, which is nearing its end.

In a statement to Al-Masirah, Al-Ajri said that the aggression coalition has not yet demonstrated seriousness towards peace, relish the suffering of Yemeni people, and wish to obstruct any interest of the Yemeni people.

He added that the approval of the truce shows the falsehood of Saudi pretexts, which were alleging that the National Salvation Government of Yemen rejected calls for peace.

Al-Ajri pointed out that the truce was “a test of the intentions of the countries of aggression, and exposed the falseness of their calls for peace.”

According to Abdul-Malik al-Ajri, the coalition of aggression has used various excuses from the beginning in order to obstruct the opening of Sana’a International Airport.

He stated that the performance of the UN has been disappointing.

“It was expected from UN that it would be unable to sponsor the truce until its implementation,” al-Ajri said, explaining that “the national party agreed to the truce to alleviate the suffering of Yemeni people, but the performance of the other party confirms the correctness of the position towards lifting the siege.”

Al-Ajri added, “We tried to show restraint so that the argument would be clear to everyone against the countries of aggression, yet the obstacles persist.”

Al-Ajri explained that “the US-Saudi aggression wants to stop military actions so that their countries are no longer bombed [in retaliation strikes], but then keep Yemen under the reality of the crisis in order to explode the situation from the inside,” stressing that the US-Saudi mercenaries “do not have any decision power in the siege, and the countries of the aggression are responsible and concerned, even if they try to put their mercenaries in the forefront.”

The diplomat indicated that the bodies affiliated with the mercenaries of the aggression were formed by foreign powers, do not represent the Yemeni people and have nothing to do with them, noting that “most countries of the world deal with passports issued by various governorates of the Republic of Yemen.”
