Sana’a: UN envoy mislead about Hodeidah seaport revenues

The Acting Chairman of the pro-Houthis Higher Economic Committee, Hashem Ismail, confirmed, on Monday, that the UN envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths turned against Stockholm agreement by justifying it to prevent the entry of oil derivatives.

Ismail said in an interview with Almasirah newspaper that “Griffiths deliberately presented a misleading picture about the fate of the revenues of Hodeidah ports, even though he knew that they were spent on salaries,” noting that the UN envoy clearly adopts the Saudi-led coalition agenda and does not talk about the looted revenues of the other party.

“If the United Nations is serious, then we will be able to pay out the full salary within a week,” added the acting head of the Supreme Economic Committee. He clarified that the economic situation is still bad and is being run in a way that serves the military agenda of the Saudi-led coalition.

He revealed that the UN envoy called the Supreme Economic Committee to discuss the economic file and the other party refused to participate.
