FM calls for pressure on Saudi regime to lift siege on Sanaa airport, Yemeni ports

SANAA, Sept. 06 (YPA) – Foreign Minister of National Salvation Government, Hisham Sharaf, on Monday called on the American and British administrations to pressure the Saudi regime to immediately lift the siege on Sanaa International Airport and Yemeni ports.

In response to the US and British foreign ministers’ statements and their call for Sanaa to commit to an immediate ceasefire, Sharaf said: “this speech is supposed to be directed to the aggressors against Yemen, who continue to bomb it, impose a blockade on Yemeni ports and airports, and prevent the entry of oil and medicine ships.”

The foreign minister considered these statements an attempt to “shuffle the cards in front of the world, and throw the ball into Sanaa’s court as if it were the aggressor and whoever started this unjust war.”

The positions of the American and British administrations fall within the framework of international political hypocrisy, and aimed to please the Saudi regime to continue buying weapons, he added.

Sharaf stressed that such biased statements to the aggressor party “will never contribute to achieving the desired peace.”
