YPC Calls for Ending Distillation Policy in Releasing Fuel Vessels
Sana’a government on Saturday called on the Saudi-led coalition and the United Nations to stop the policy of distillation in releasing fuel ships, as this has negative effects in raising demurrage fines on ships.
The official spokesman for the Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC), Issam Al-Mutawakel, explained that the Saudi- led coalition and in partnership with the United Nations is a major reason for doubling Yemenis’ suffering, as a result of their practice of distillation policy by releasing fuel ships.
He pointed out that four fuel vessels entered Hodeida port today, including two gasoline vessels, a gas vessel, and another diesel, while the coalition is still holding five fuel vessels, despite obtaining entry permits from the United Nations.
Al-Mutawakil called on the United Nations to act impartially and to abide by the armistice terms, to stop arbitrary practices and piracy, and to ensure smooth entry of fuel ships into Hodeida port.
