Al-Mashat accuses coalition of obstructing economic file

" America with its Saudi and Emirati tools have drawn plans to destroy Yemen and its economy and exhaust the people," al-Mashat said.

President of pro-Houthis Supreme Political Council (SPC), the highest ruling authority in Sana’a, Mahdi al-Mashat, accused on Monday the Saudi-led coalition of obstructing negotiations on the economic file.

In an interview with an official “26 September” newspaper, al-Mashat held the coalition full responsible for the humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen as a result of the continuing war and siege imposed on the Yemeni people.

Al-Mashat confirmed that America with its Saudi and Emirati tools have drawn plans to destroy Yemen and its economy and exhaust the people.

He warned of the danger of using the economy siege as a war card, stressing importance of continuation in taking measures to protect the national currency.

“We have great steps in this direction, but we hope for rationality and for the public interest to prevail for all the Yemeni people and neutralizing the economy,” al-Mashat added.
