The Minister called on the world to pay more attention to the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Yemen amid increasingly growing risks of food security.

He stated that Russian-Ukrainian war has severe impacts upon the most vulnerable segments of the Yemeni peoples, as Yemen has to import more than 45% of its basic food, mainly wheat from Russia and Ukraine.
