Yemeni diplomats call on UN for aid with explosive remnant removal

Chairman of the National Military Committee Yahya Al-Razami met with the Security Reform Sector Team in the Office of Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen, led by Military Adviser General Anthony Hayward.
The meeting, which was held in the Jordanian capital, Amman, discussed the effects of cluster bombs and mines planted by US-Saudi aggression in a number of governorates.

Al-Razami called on the UN envoy to pressure the Saudi-backed government and the countries of aggression to release the equipment of the Executive Center for dealing with mines that they have been holding in Djibouti for a long time.

He referred to the pledges of the former UN envoy to the Sweden agreement to release these materials and provide the necessary support to the center.

Al-Razami explained that the Executive Center for Mine Action is unable to carry out its tasks in removing mines and lifting cluster bombs and explosives left by the US-Saudi aggression without these logistical materials.

He pointed to the suffering of the Yemeni people as a result of those mines and explosives, which hardly a day goes by without killing or injured citizens, including children and women.

The security sector official in the Office of the UN Envoy affirmed that all efforts were made to release the devices and equipment of the Executive Center for Mine Action.
