Yemeni Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik Saeed sent a letter to that effect to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, SABA news agency highlighted.

Yemeni Foreign Minister Ahmed Awad Bin Mubarak delivered the letter to Indian Minister of State for Foreign Affairs V. Muraleedharan, during a meeting the two officials held in New York.

The text deals with the international food crisis and reflections on the situation in Yemen in the wake of the conflict initiated by the Houthi militia, the source stated.

Bin Mubarak urged the grain exporting countries, such as India, to work with Yemen to address the humanitarian situation.

More than 23.4 million Yemenis, out of a total population of 31 million, need humanitarian assistance, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs recently revealed.

The war in Yemen began in 2014, when Houthi rebels took up arms and occupied large swathes of the country, including Sana’a, its capital.
