YPC employees continue to protest in front of UN office in Sanaa

SANAA, Feb. 14 (YPA) – Employees of the Yemeni Petroleum Company (YPC), trade unions and its affiliated bodies staged a vigil in front of the UN office in Sana’a after Friday prayers, with the title ” Community Solidarity to Condemn the UN Failure.”

During the vigil, YPC’s spokesman Amin al-Shabati said the aggression coalition still holding eight oil ships carrying more than 200,000 tons of gasoline and diesel.

Al-Shabati expressed his hope that the United Nations will emerge from the state of failure condemned by the sectors of society and the general citizens, and move to the position of positive success in order to achieve the rights of citizens and their goals in the arrival of oil derivatives smoothly and safely.

The statement issued by the vigil condemned the UN silence and the continued disregard of the United Nations in the face of what is happening by the coalition aggression, which makes it a partner in the siege on the Yemeni people.

It called on the United Nations to carry out its humanitarian and legal duty and release all detained oil vessels and ensure that they are not detained in the future.

The statement reiterated the demand for lifting the embargo on Sana’a International Airport and Ras Issa facilities, and neutralizing the Yemeni Petroleum company, its facilities, stations and its agents from targeting.
