Sana’a Is Open to All Int’l Endeavors to End War, Lift Siege
Foreign Minister in Sana’a government Hisham Sharaf, said on Saturday that Sanaa is open to all international and regional endeavors and efforts to end the war and lift the siege, and this is the agenda for which it is working.
This came during his participation today, in a high-level interactive circle discussion, through online communication technology, entitled “Yemen, the turning point,” which was held by the French Geopragma Research Group.
Sharaf reviewed, during the discussion in which a number of political, military, diplomatic and French academic figures participated, the details and backgrounds of the war on Yemen from the political, economic and military aspects, all of which confirms that there is no justification for the war on Yemen.
The Foreign Minister responded to a number of inquiries from the participants in the interactive discussion, which dealt with the crimes of the Saudi-led coalition since March 2015, including the targeting of civilians and the destruction of the infrastructure of the Yemeni people.
He pointed out that the blockade has caused the worst humanitarian catastrophe the world has known in modern times, and affected all areas of life.
Sharaf affirmed that all endeavors to bring peace to Yemen are valued and appreciated by the political leadership in Sanaa, represented by the Supreme Political Council and the Salvation Government.
Regarding the developments of events, Sharaf indicated that it is not logical to link the humanitarian aspect to military, security and political files.
“If the two Saudi-Emirati coalition countries, along with the international community, are serious about ending the war, it is important to take confidence-building measures, such as opening Sanaa airport and not obstructing the entry of fuel ships into Hodeida port, to create the atmosphere for comprehensive ceasefire negotiations and a peaceful political settlement,” he said.
