In a tweet on Friday, Mohammed Abdul-Salam said that Yemen does not consider as serious any call for peace that excludes the total removal of the current blockade on the war-torn country.
“We do not consider any call for peace as serious unless it includes the complete lifting of the blockade. However, we have not yet noticed any seriousness to stop the aggression,” he said.
أي دعوة للسلام لا نعتبرها جادة ما لم تتضمن رفع الحصار كليا، على أنه لم نلحظ بعد أي جدية لوقف العدوان، والدعوات الصادرة من بعض الجهات الدولية في هذا الشأن تقدم تصورا انتقائيا عن السلام بمنحه لدول العدوان ومنعه عن اليمن، فيما السلام للجميع أو لا سلام .— محمد عبدالسلام (@abdusalamsalah) April 16, 2021
“The calls for peace issued by some international bodies reveal a selective perception of peace by granting it to the countries of aggression and preventing it from Yemen, while peace is either for all or there is no peace,” Abdul-Salam added.
Earlier, UN Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths had said that a political solution is the only possible way to the persisting conflict in the Arab country, and Abdul-Salam had lambasted him for being, in fact, the spokesman of the Saudi-led military coalition and that he did not resemble an unbiased international official.
All international efforts to end the aggression against the Arab country have so far failed.
Six years into the Yemen war, which has killed hundreds of thousands of people and destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure, Yemeni people are facing malnutrition, hunger, and famine, which have increased risks of disease and starvation.
Saudi Arabia has been the main recipient of US weapons over the past years.
The popular Ansarullah movement, backed by the Yemeni armed forces and allied popular groups, has gone from strength to strength against the Saudi-led invaders, and successfully defended Yemen, leaving Riyadh and its allies bogged down in the county.
The sea, land, and air siege from, among others, has led to the closure of the Sana’a International Airport, the largest and most important airport in Yemen, and closed the Hudaydah port, which acts as a lifeline for the impoverished nation.
