YPC Holds UN Responsible for Worsening Humanitarian Situation in Yemen
Sana’a-based Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC) on Friday held the United Nations responsible for the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Yemen.
This came in a statement issued during a vigil organized by the company’s staff in front of the UN office in Sana’a to denounce the sea piracy of the Saudi-led coalition on the fuel ships, which exacerbated the suffering of Yemeni people.
The statement condemned the silence of the United Nations and the complicity of the international organizations and bodies with the Saudi coalition forces in preventing the entry of fuel ships to Hodeida port despite obtaining UN permits.
The statement affirmed that the catastrophic effects of the continued piracy acts on fuel ships were not met with serious move from the United Nation, as it is the international body concerned with facilitating the access of basic goods.
The forces of Saudi coalition are still holding four fuel ships, including one loaded with mazut, another loaded with domestic gas, and two others carrying 59,966 tons of benzene and diesel, for more than seven months, the statement added.
