PM directs Health Ministry to provide cholera drugs to Taiz
[22/06/2017 01:47]

Yemen's prime minister has directed the Health Ministry to provide emergency medicines and propose funds for some Taiz hospitals to help them offer health care to patients from cholera, war wounds and other diseases.

Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr issued the directives during a meeting with the Joint Meeting Parties' leaders of Taiz to discuss the security and public service situations in the city. Aden governor Abdul-Aziz al-Muflahi attended the meeting.

The meeting discussed the major issues of the afflicted city, which has been under siege and shelling by the Saleh-Houthi militias for more than two years.

The Taiz officials demanded the premier to resolve issues related to civil servants' salaries that have gone largely unpaid, completing the expulsion of the militias from Taiz, restoring services and renormalizing life back in the city.

The premier told the Taiz officials that the political leadership, represented by president Hadi, pays attention to Taiz.

Bin-Daghr told them the government has begun, as of Wednesday evening, to transfer the Taiz civil servants' salaries through al-Kuraimi bank.

He acknowledged that the government finds difficulty in salary payment because the coup militias are in control of half of the country's revenues which they use to (purchase weapons) to kill the Yemeni people. "But the government is doing its best."

The premier reiterated his call upon the international community to force the militia to transfer all the revenues to the Central Bank of Yemen so that the government can meet its financial duties toward all the people of Yemen.

He said the government has approved the inclusion of fallen soldiers' families in the public payroll with each family to receive a salary of one soldier every month.

The premier said: "Victory always begins in Taiz. That is why the Saleh-Houthi militias subjected it to an oppressive siege and exercised the most horrific atrocities against its people. But the city's people persevered through the militia's intransigence, to defend the state draft which Yemenis reached a consensus about during the National Dialogue conference. The coup party themselves had agreed on it before they conducted coup."

"The fruit of this perseverance," the premier continued, "will be a victory and realization of the Yemeni people's aspirations for a federal state of six divisions that share wealth and power in equity, in place of the centralized state which died a bulk of Yemen's population from their rights."

"The government pays a lot of attention to Taiz, equally with other provinces. However, the militia-waged war has wrecked all the state institutions. And now the government is struggling to make the people's suffering less severe in all provinces."
