Sana’a Accuses UN of ” Justifying ” the Naval Blockade
Deputy Foreign Minister in Sana’a government, Hussein Al-Ezzi confirmed that the United Nations justifies blocking ships from entering Hodeidah port by not receiving the green light from Riyadh to carry out the inspection, in an explicit admission of its lack of impartiality.
“The UN justifies blocking the Angelina ship by not receiving the green light from Riyadh to carry out the inspection,” Al-Ezzi said in a series of tweets on his Twitter account.
“The UN’s justification is an explicit and shameful recognition of the lack of its impartiality and involvement in putting its inspection mechanism at the disposal of the ‘aggressor’ to enforce the blockade.”
“We are continuing with unprecedented rigor to end this farce, whatever the cost, seeking the help of Allah and then our people, in the strict measures that we will take,” Al-Ezzi said.
“We promise our dear and oppressed people that they will not continue to suffer alone indefinitely,” he added, stressing that there will be no hesitation in taking big decisions.
Earlier, Al-Ezzi tersely stated that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and his special envoy Hans Grundberg are officially accused of blockading the people of Yemen.
“The UN’s inspection protocol in Yemen refused to issue a permit for a ship, without providing any explanation as to why,” he added. “The arbitrary nature of the UNVIM detaining ships will surely cost the United Nations a lot.”
