Prime Minister of Yemen: Saudi Arabia and takfiri militias fully responsible for ongoing economic misery

Yemen’s prime minister said Saudi forces and their allied Takfiri militants are in control of oil fields and natural reserves in Yemen and are fully liable for the ongoing miseries in the war-wracked Arab country.

Abdulaziz bin Habtoor said that the Sana’a-based government only receives 7% of the overall natural resources revenues, Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.

He said Yemeni officials have “implemented reforms in order to fight corruption,” adding that the High Anti-Corruption Commission has worked well in this regard despite considerable efforts by the Riyadh regime and its allies to shut down Yemeni institutions and organizations.

Back on July 2 last year, Habtoor said Washington was aggressively seeking to establish control over energy reserves and ports in Yemen’s eastern provinces of Hadhramaut and al-Mahrah and loot them.

The Yemeni prime minister also strongly condemned a visit at the time by the US ambassador to the country’s energy-rich eastern provinces, saying that Steven Fagin’s trip fell within the framework of the US attempt to dominate Yemen’s oil wells and ports.

The Yemeni prime minister asserted that the Saudi occupiers’ plots in the two provinces must be directly confronted and lauded popular resistance and steadfastness in the face of Saudi-led acts of hostility and schemes which are in flagrant violation of Yemen’s sovereignty.
