Sana’a government reiterates demand for full payment of public sector salaries

The Supreme Political Council in Sana’a has on Monday confirmed that the renewal of the armistice requires a commitment to paying the salaries of all employees and return all the services that Saudi-led coalition has cut off to double the suffering of Yemeni people.

This came during the meeting held by the Council Monday, headed by the President of the Council, Mahdi Al-Mashat, to review the latest political developments related to the armistice and the existing communications.

The Supreme Political Council explained that it had initiated the opening of an account in the Central Bank’s branch in Hodeidah, and the revenues of the port of Hodeidah were deposited into it to contribute to the payment of salaries to all state employees. However, so far the Saudi-led party and the United Nations have not yet committed to their obligation o filling the gap for the payment of salaries.

The Council stressed the need to fully open Sana’a International Airport and Hodeidah Port.

In the meeting, the Council condemned the desecration of Mecca by the Zionist news outlet Channel 13, considering it a provocation to Muslims.

The Council reviewed reports on government efforts to prepare for the rainy season, and to account and treat the damage caused by heavy rainfall and torrential floods, which Yemen has been witnessing these days.
