Sana’a Condemns UK Interference in Yemeni Economic Affairs
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Sana’a government condemned, on Friday, Britain’s insistence on exacerbating the suffering of the people of Yemen and obstructing peace efforts to end the US-backed Saudi-led coalition war on Yemen.
In a statement, the Ministry stated that Britain was hostile to the Yemeni people and brazenly supported thieves and terrorists in Yemen starting by supporting the pro-coalition government.
It added that the British ambassador’s statements publicly revealed the criminal role played by London in exacerbating the suffering of Yemenis.
The ministry also indicated that the statements of the British ambassador prove that Britain stands behind the economic war, including the policies of blockade and starvation.
It pointed out that Britain is trying hard to hinder peace efforts and push towards resuming the Saudi war on Yemen.
It called on the United Nations and all free people in the world to condemn the blatant and impeding British intervention.
The ministry also called for the need to find a fair and just assessment of the economic situation in order to reduce the human suffering that may cause a potential disaster.
In turn, the spokesman for the Salvation Government, Daif Allah Al-Shami, asserted that the British ambassador’s intervention about Yemen’s economic situation in the name of humanity and fear for the people of Yemen comes to justify the crime of raising the customs dollar.
Al-Shami explained in his tweet that the effrontery of the British ambassador shows the main direct role of Britain and the US in this crime.
Earlier, British Ambassador Michael Aaron announced London’s support for the escalating economic measures approved by the pro-coalition government against the people of Yemen.
The British ambassador revealed an upcoming meeting of the Quartet with the aim of supporting the economic measures of the Saudi-backed government.
