Abdulsalam: Prolonged Conflict is Due to Bias of Coalition Countries
Mohammed Abdulsalam stressed that Yemen will continue to defend itself through all possible means.
The head of the Sanaa negotiation delegation, Mohammed Abdulsalam, stated that the "blind bias" of the Security Council has contributed to the prolongation of the conflict in Yemen.
Abdulsalam stressed that Yemen, in a position of self-defense, "continues to repel the aggression with every possible defense."
On Wednesday, the UN Security Council denounced the Yemeni Army and Popular Committees' armed strikes on the Saudi-led coalition, urging an end to the military escalation in the Marib Governorate in Yemen.
تبني مجلس الأمن موقف قوى العدوان ليس بجديد،وهو بانحيازه الفج والأعمى منذ أول يوم ساهم في إطالة هذا الصراع كل هذه السنوات،كما أنه بنفسه يعطل بياناته من أي تأثير إيجابي، ومن جهتنا نؤكد أن اليمن ومن موقع الدفاع عن النفس مستمر في صد العدوان وبكل وسيلة دفاعية ممكنة.— محمد عبدالسلام (@abdusalamsalah) October 21, 2021
The members of the Security Council demanded an "immediate nationwide ceasefire" in Yemen, citing Resolution 2565. The members stressed the need for de-escalation by all, including an immediate end to what they called Houthi escalation in Ma'rib, the US mission to the United Nations said.
Earlier, Hussein al-Ezzi, a senior Ansar Allah official, said a political solution in Yemen will not be reached before the Saudi-led coalition intervention ends.
"Foreign intervention is a significant obstacle in the path to reaching a Yemeni-Yemeni political solution," Salvation Government Foreign Minister al-Ezzi said on Twitter.
He asserted his belief that the international community turning a blind eye to foreign intervention in Yemen is one of the most prominent reasons behind the prolongation of the war.
The Saudi-imposed war on Yemen has left more than 233,000 people dead. The war has also led to 80% of the 30 million Yemenis relying on humanitarian aid, constituting the world's worst humanitarian crisis, as declared by the United Nations.
