Al-Bakhiti assured that the aggressors prevent ships from entering Yemeni ports by force of arms, and warned that if this situation continues, they will respond.
Regarding the UN truce, he warned that Yemen does not accept a permanent or prolonged ceasefire if the aggression continues.
For his part, the member of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council, Mohammad Ali Al-Houthi, spoke out against a pronouncement by the UN Security Council which described as ‘extremist’ the demands of Sana’a to extend the truce in Yemen.
‘It is not extremism to lift the siege on Yemen. It is not extremism to hand over salaries of employees from oil revenues.
It is not extremism to lift the ban on travel to Sana’a airport from all destinations.
What is extremism is the Security Council’s statement,’ the Yemeni politician stressed. Meanwhile, the government’s deputy foreign minister, Hussein Al-Azzi, pointed out that, contrary to what US envoy Tim Lenderking says, conditions in the country are neither difficult nor impossible.
