Aden, (Saba)-Ministry of Foreign Affairs has welcomed plans of UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs for using alternative ports to receive relief aid and humanitarian assistances to affected people in Yemen.
Aden and Mukalla ports and border outlets with Saudi Arabia will replace Hodeida Port.
Hodeida Port is still being used by rebels for trafficking weapons, threatening the international navigation and looting humanitarian aid, confirmed the ministry in a release issued Thursday.
The release goes on, despite the influx of relief aid in the past via the port, Houthi-Saleh's militias continue practices of blackmailing, imposing tariffs on merchants and distributing relief through affiliates for trading with them for financing their war efforts.
The ministry affirmed Aden and Mukalla ports and Saudi ground outlets are ready to receive relief aid and other imports. The government, in cooperation with Arab Coalition, is working on rehabilitating Mocha Port to help receiving relief goods, added the release.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs called also the UN humanitarian office and other aid organizations to adopt transparent mechanism for its activities and distribution humanitarian aid for ensuring reaching the affected people.
