RIYADH - SABA
Foreign Minister Mohammed al-Hadrami put blame on Houthi militia leaders for blocking the UN's efforts to help addressing Safer oil tanker problem, underling the need for pilling up pressures upon the militia to let the UN's technicians access to the tanker before it is too late.
His statement came as he met on Thursday with the Charged' Affairs of the British embassy in Yemen Simon Smart.
Al-Hadrami and Smart conferred over a range of topics relating to peace process in Yemen, efforts to put Riyadh Agreement in place and Safer oil tanker problem.
For the UN-led peace process the Foreign Minister stated that the government reacted constructively to the UN envoy's proposals for peace, underscoring the need for mounting pressure on the Houthi militia to come to peace.
Al-Hadrami called on the South Transitional Council to honor its obligation under Riyadh Agreement as the government has already done, citing the appointment of the governor of Aden and the chief security as a case-in-point.
The British diplomat voiced his country's concerns about the aggravated humanitarian crisis in Yemen, affirming the UK's continuous contribution to the efforts aiming to handle different problems including safer oil tanker.
