Speaking to the UN General Assembly (UNGA), Foreign Minister Ahmed Awad Bin Mubarak claimed that Yemen barely received one million Covid-19 vaccine doses to distribute among 30 million inhabitants ,and also warned about the serious economic situation in his country, whose economy shrunk by over 50%.

He also blamed the Houthi militia, which controls a large part of national territory, for plotting all talk processes.

We have been very interested in restoring peace, to this end we have made significant concessions over the past six years, but the Houthi militia blocked all efforts in this regard, he assured.

We are meeting here while Yemen is facing up too difficult circumstances due to the war imposed on our people, he said.

According to UN´s latest report, about 21 million Yemeni people really need humanitarian aid, including 11 million children.

The conflict caused thousands of deaths or injuries, 4.4 million displaced and 13 million poor.

Hostilities touched off in 2014, as the Houthi militia launched an offensive from the north occupying Sana’a, the national capital, and large areas of Yemen.
