Yemeni Supreme Political Council, in a statement published on Monday, said that the National Salvation Government is awaiting the world body’s answer to the steps proposed by Houthi leader Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi for a nationwide ceasefire.
The statement said the new UN special envoy for Yemen should not close his eyes to the brutal siege that the Saudi regime and its allied invaders have placed on the country since the start of their US-sponsored military campaign in early 2015.
He said the assistance that Grundberg needs in order to undertake his mission should come from neither the Riyadh regime nor its allies.
“These countries are obstructing the peace process, and are doubling the economic war [against Yemen] all through the siege and by means of various sanctions,” the council said, Press TV reported.
The statement also condemned Saudi Arabia over the expulsion of Yemeni academics and nationals from the kingdom.
The council likewise blamed the Saudi-led military coalition for the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the Yemeni provinces, especially in Hudaydah and other coastal areas.
