High-level meeting discusses humanitarian crisis in Yemen
[22/09/2021 06:15]

NY-SABA
Foreign Minister Dr. Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak, participated in the high-level virtual meeting held on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly entitled “Yemen: Crisis Responding to the Crises within the World's Largest Humanitarian Crisis”, organized by Switzerland, Sweden and the European Union, with the aim of discussing interventions to confront the humanitarian crisis in Yemen and mobilize more funding to cover the gap in the humanitarian response plan.

At the meeting, The statement of the Republic of Yemen stated that "Yemen has not faced a reality similar to what the country is witnessing today in terms of multiple and overlapping crises in their dimensions, causes and effects, in a way that exacerbates their devastating impact on the lives of the Yemeni citizen and the national economy, especially in light of the continuing war waged by the Houthi militia against Yemenis".

The statement said that despite the generous support of the international community, including through the UN-led Humanitarian Response Plan, the humanitarian crisis in Yemen is the largest and most urgent in the world.

It said that the Yemeni government works, based on its responsibility towards the Yemeni people in all regions of the Republic, to facilitate the work of United Nations agencies and relief organizations and facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid to those who deserve it. It reaffirmed the Yemeni government's commitment to safe and unhindered access to relief assistance and humanitarian workers to Yemen and to work with them to address any challenges they face in this regard.

The Yemeni government also continues its efforts to provide services to all the Yemeni people without discrimination, despite the scarcity of resources and the abundance of challenges created by the Houthi militias, whether by creating crises or through their brutal attacks on cities.

The statement noted that, "For example, the Marib Governorate represents the main source of domestic gas in Yemen, and despite the continuation of the brutal attack launched by the Houthi militias on Marib, which in turn exacerbates the level of human suffering, this has not and will not discourage the government from doing its duty and ensuring that domestic gas reaches all Yemeni homes including in the hijacked capital Sana'a."

"In addition, the Houthi militias continue to make up crises and exploit human suffering as a card to blackmail the international community, an example of which is their false claim of a blockade imposed on the port of Hodeidah, despite the fact that members of the international community know, and as evidenced in the reports of the United Nations Monitoring and Inspection Mechanism in Yemen (UNVIM) , that relief materials and commercial goods flow smoothly through the port of Hodeidah in particular and the rest of the Yemeni ports, and that the measures taken by the government, like the rest of the Yemeni ports, are limited to fuel imports that the Houthi militias take as a way to enrich their leaders and finance their military operations against the Yemeni people."

It said that "The former Special Envoy of the Secretary-General of the United Nations had presented a plan to bypass this issue and the government committed to it, but the Houthis refused to abide by it and continued to blackmail the Yemenis."
"At a time when Yemenis are in need of emergency assistance as a result of displacement, poverty and food insecurity, the biggest factors driving Yemen today towards the threat of famine is the massive decrease in the purchasing power of its citizens. The Yemeni economy is suffering from a severe crisis, the gross domestic product has decreased by more than 50% since 2015, the value of the Yemeni riyal has declined by a large percentage, the inflation rates in the prices of goods and services have exceeded 50%, and the global economic slowdown associated with the Covid-19 pandemic has caused a decline."
